Have you ever felt INVISIBLE?
I did, most of my life. But I always felt that I was meant for more. That I was meant to be seen.
My feeling of invisibility came from my desire to please people, but always feeling I was falling short.
Little did I know, at the time, that I needed to be seen by ME first.
People are selfish. And I don’t mean that in a bad way. We’re supposed to be selfish, but we forget what that really means.
We need to take care of ourSELF first. We need to love ourSELF, nurture ourSELF, CARE about ourSELF, SEE ourSELF for who we really are.
But we’re conditioned to believe that selfish is a bad word…something we should feel guilty about if we are.
We are conditioned to gain acceptance of others. To not make waves, to follow the straight and narrow path.
We worry about what others are thinking about us.
“What should I wear?”
“How should I look?”
“What if I say the wrong thing?”
“What if they don’t like me?”
But we lose ourselves on the path because it’s not ours.
I’m a seeker, a questioner. I drove my parents and teachers crazy with all of my “why?”s.
In the course of my seeking I discovered that I will never please any of those people.
The path I was on was not getting me to fully express my unique talents and ablilities.
I was marching away my days following someone(s) else’s ideas, based on their limited thinking. They weren’t SEEING me because I wasn’t BEING me.
I can only control ME, my thoughts, my feelings, my destiny.
This is why I’m a Life Transformation Coach. I want to help my clients remember themSELF again. To put the oxygen mask on their face first, then bring the best of themSELF to their loved ones, their projects, their passions.
So they can be SEEN again. No more INVISIBILITY. Embrace your uniqueness.
