As I continue along my spiritual path a few things have really begun to strike me. The most troublesome is the reaction I get from others who react negatively to the (what I perceive to be) positive changes in me.
I am no longer depressed and sharing my depression. I no longer want to wallow in self-pity or the pain of the past. I speak openly about how my connection to the Divine Universe has transformed me from a bitter, ailing, snarky bitch into a much more open-minded and pleasant “garden variety” unicorn instead. I hope I am being perceived as a positive light in a dim and angry world…and I try everyday to spread a little hope to the world.
My back story isn’t pretty. Trauma after trauma fills the pages. I don’t pretend that there won’t be more trauma in my life – I’m an imperfect soul living in an imperfect world. But I am doing MY best, and I am proud of how far I have come.
Which brings me to my topic: the Choice to change is Wholly and Entirely your OWN. I don’t have the ability to make anyone change, nor do I even attempt too. I simply try to live my life by the terms that I have chosen too. So why all the pushback? Why are some people so triggered by my new found happiness and joy?
I don’t think I will ever know – and that’s totally ok with me. I don’t need to know why others choose to see the light, but push it away. Maybe they aren’t ready…maybe they aren’t even sure they can. So I say to them, and to anyone else reading this: The CHOICE is YOURS. It won’t be easy, it may even seem like the world is against you for awhile. Just keep pushing through, and never mind the haters. Haters are just “confused fans” after all!
