Be True To Yourself?
Many cultures teach women that if we are to put our needs before others or if we are true to ourselves that we will be judged as selfish. If we don’t question these cultural expectations, we either judge ourselves when we put our needs first, or we end up putting everyone else on our “to do” list but ourselves. We then may wonder why our lives lack the meaning and fulfillment that we so long for. The below quote speaks so eloquently to the truth of selfishness.
“Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.
And unselfishness is letting other people’s lives alone, not interfering with them.” Oscar Wilde
We must fill our cups first. When our cups are full, we have something worthwhile to give. When our cups are empty, we are depleted, run down, angry, unmotivated, and headed for burnout.
My passion is supporting you in gaining the courage and wisdom to be more true to yourself than you ever dreamed possible, and, as a result, live a life you LOVE while making the difference you were born to make in the world!
Ironically, one of the most powerful lessons that I have learned over the years is that it is was only after I became true to myself that I was able to tap into who I really was, and was then able to gain clarity about what I was authentically called to contribute to the world.
I also learned that is only when we have the courage to be true to ourselves by putting our needs first, that we can make the authentic contribution we are called to make, and as a result we can finally experience the meaning and fulfillment we’ve been longing for all along.
