I’m constantly reminded that living a healthy life is NOT just eating right and exercising daily.
It’s so much more. It’s how you speak to yourself. It’s how you speak to others. It’s the thoughts you think. It’s the way you feel. It’s what you read. It’s what you watch on TV. It’s your emotional health. It’s your mental health. It’s your spiritual health. It’s your relationships.
Health is your whole damn life.
I’ve been seeing a counsellor weekly for about a month now and every time I see him, I learn so much more about myself and how I’m connecting with others. Light bulbs go off all the time when talking with my counsellor. And I am so very, very grateful for that. He gives me so much to think about and ways to think about things differently.
Lately I’ve been thinking about how easy it is to make the ‘other’ wrong. That way, you are ‘right’ and you feel better. Have you ever had the experience of someone making you wrong so that they are right? I have. A lot. And what I’ve come to realize is this…..
it is never about you. It isn’t. It is always about them and their own shit. Their fears. Their judgements. Their insecurity. What you are doing actually doesn’t matter, it’s their own feelings they are reacting to that is causing them to make you wrong.
See, because if they didn’t make you wrong, if they didn’t judge you, then they’d have to look inward. They’d have to sit in their own anxiety or fear or whatever is going on and identify it. That’s scary for most people. It is easier to make other ‘wrong’ so that you do not have to look at your own stuff. The deep down scary stuff.
My question to you is….do you do that? Do you make others ‘wrong’ so that you feel better about yourself? And if so, why? Can you see that judging others, making them wrong, putting them down, whatever it is, does not contribute to your over all health & wellness.
Do you want to live a healthier, happier, more authentic life? Then start doing your work. Your internal work. Figure out why you react the way you do. Figure out why you’re making someone else wrong.
Start figuring out your own shit and stop concerning yourself with other’s shit.
When you do, you will start living as your authentic self and that, my friends, is a way more healthier approach to life:)
