I am worthy to be my authentic self.
I am worthy of my own beliefs.
I realized that I am still concerned about the opinions that others
- friends & family who already have an idea of who I am -
have about me.
Because they know me as a reflection of their own beliefs.
Most of us were raised in the shadow of our elders.
We adopted their beliefs and we strive to be accepted and approved of based on how well we mold to their belief systems.
However... that which I just described is conditional love.
Which leads me to believe that my true fear is that if I'm honest with my new personal beliefs, that I already know are disagreed with, that I won't be loved.
That right there is really effed up.
