Sometimes we want to know what is going on, and we forget that we already know.
At some point, I was stripped of my worldly cushions and left bare-bottomed and exposed on cold-metal. One cushion, a solid relationship. Another, a steady flow of clients. The finale, an annoyingly shallow (yet awesomely ego-building) stream of validation.
When each support falls out of place, I find myself awkwardly falling in mid-air, thinking, ‘Why is this happening!?’ The landing isn’t pretty. The black and blue, worse. With bruises like that, I vow to never sit so high.
I tell myself it is more responsible to assume a permanenet position on the floor. I call it risk-management, most days.
Some days, I can’t ignore the kink in my neck that reminds me risk-managaement is stifling. My vertebrate is sore from looking up to where I could be, to where I want to be, if I only had the cajones, or shall I say, ovaries, to start climbing. #grab-a-pair
Too afraid of the descent, I avoid heights.
I have fallen, and it hurts. I have been stripped of support and it is belittling. What I now know though, is that I have adopted a FALSE perspective that these temporary cushions determine my value.
Time for a perspective shift: Any M.I.A validation is not proof of inadequacy, but a reminder to root your worth in something more eternal than feathers.
The next time you are in a, ‘Why is this happening?!?” freak-out zone, ask…
- What support system have I lost?
- What part of me did it validate?
- Is there something more eternal that I can look to for my worth? (dare I say, my Truth)
