Who do you think you are? You’re too big for your britches. Wait your turn; you’re too young. You may have grown up hearing similar messages that were meant to help you, but a lot of those messages are just the result of generational trauma. Instead, these messages did more harm than good.
Even as adults, people often want to put their fears onto us, and give us a plan that works for them but not for us. We can no longer hold on to beliefs that do not serve us. We cannot be effective therapists or teachers having listened to these voices and choosing to continue to listen to these voices.
As adults, we have choices. We can make intentional decisions about the voices that we let into our heads and into our hearts. Of course, sometimes we listen to the wrong people, but it’s important that we take responsibility and make a choice on who we are going to listen to and who we aren’t.
If you have any desire for other people to listen to you, you have to be very intentional about who you are listening to and who is guiding you. Surround yourself with people who believe in you and who allow you to let your unique light shine.
