Resistance is like a death, including its phases. We go through the motions of shock, denial, anger, depression and hopefully ending in peace. Getting stuck on one phase then trading it for another, sometimes to never fully gain acceptance.
Acceptance… The power of fully processing, blessing and releasing. A beautiful growth to our spirit and an act of self love.
Everyday, with or without our knowledge we are resisting. Our emotions, our thoughts, our desires, our choices, our loved ones, and even ourselves.
Buried deep inside our moral compass guides us accordingly and we act upon what is programmed into our brains from a young age.
Sitting on our hands, holding our tongues, bitting our nails, smoking too many cigarettes reacting to everyone and anything that challenges our very being.
The exposure can be defeating especially if we are not aware of the resistance that is innately in us. An intense and raw activation is triggered; and here comes the self sabotage.
Self sabotage… The pain pulsing through our veins become unbearable and we medicate. Some with drugs, some with money, some with being a people pleaser and never rock the boat for fear of being rejected.
Rejection… The bastard that lies to us and keeps us locked in the waiting bin of being accepted, when all we need to do is accept ourselves. Then it all boils down to choice.
Choice… Something we are given by grace and always have. No matter what your status, religion or sex is WE ALWAYS HAVE CHOICE. Choices to break out of the norm and become what we are afraid to become. Choices that will change us to our very core and expose our very truths. Choices that keep us chained to our lives but then can set us free.
If we choose to resist ourselves, we are resisting our god given right of choice. If we choose to love, honor and be true to ourselves, we may become more than we could ever imagine.
