So many of us have experienced this:
You say “no” and the other person withdraws their love.
They don’t like your “no.”
They don’t want to honor your “no.”
They don’t value your choice.
It feels guttural, as if love is being ripped away from you.
You change your mind. Try to make it better. Say yes when you still feel a no.
You want them to want you.
You want to feel needed.
You want to be accepted.
There is nothing wrong with feeling this.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to connect with others.
There is nothing wrong with feeling the pain of disconnection.
However, when it comes at your expense, it is not love.
It is need. It is you giving your power away. It is you putting the other above you. It is you believing you are not worthy of being you.
You can say “no” and still be loved.
It requires believing you can be loved for who you are – not who others want you to be.
It means saying “no” when your body feels a no because you know someone who truly loves you will honor your no.
It is allowing those who do not truly love you to walk away. Because you refuse to abandon yourself.
You’ve got you.
So, do you?
Do you have you?
Are you honoring the magnificence of your being?
I’m here, walking this path to sovereignty, by your side. It is time to set yourself free of the constraints of the past. Own your divine power. Now is the time.
