We give our power away in so many ways. Every time we make a choice based on something or someone outside of ourselves (peers, societal pressures, media, etc.) that is harmful to our well-being we give it away. Every time we self-reject and choose not to love ourselves we give it away.
When we’re sacrificing our own well-being to conform we’re giving away our power. Been there, done it; got that lesson the hard way.
Nobody wakes up thinking, ‘omg, I love myself’ then gets breast implants. We get them out of a perceived deficit.
Too many of us don’t realize until very late in life that we’ve spent most of our lives self-rejecting and giving our power away.
Quotes: Panache Desai
“ … we’ve judged ourselves out of our magnificence … we’ve judged ourselves out of our natural state … we’ve bought into everyone else’s conversations and everyone else’s rules & regulations … it’s completely unsustainable.”
“We can only be who we are, and at some point that has to be good enough.”
