Did anyone else have an irrational fear of quicksand when they were younger? No, just me?
I feel like growing up, it was in so many movies and I kinda expected to have at least a run-in or two with it at some point in my life.
But the thing you might not realize is that it's not literal quicksand you have to look out for. It's emotional quicksand that really does us in.
A lot of people in my life right now have been mentioning that they feel "stuck" and it's because they are allowing themselves to be sucked into the bullshit (a.k.a. the emotional quicksand) of those around them.
I can safely say that the majority of those inside the "In Your Element" Community are empaths; we feel deeply for the people around us; we feel for their struggles.
We have our own problems and issues, but because we've worked on ourselves and have found a way to heal and move forward we want to help those around us to do the same.
But sometimes, the people around us enjoy staying in their misery. They don't want to change, they just want more people to attend the pity party with them.
It's important to learn how to identify those people who just want to drag you down and disconnect yourself from their "safety rope." It's time to let go of the bullshit.
Understand that you get to create your own reality...Let go Of all the things holding you back aka the bullshit!
Everything that is happening around you is a blend of your thoughts, words, and emotions... and you have the power to shift things whenever you need to.
Yes, I even believe those hard days are there for a reason.
While they may suck, they are secretly just little life lessons wrapped up in messy paper and tape, waiting for us to open them up and see the gift inside.
You're allowed to FEEL. To be happy, sad, angry...
But what you shouldn't do is take on the feelings of OTHER PEOPLE.
There is no responsibility or control over how they act, react, think, or speak...
And once you realize that, everything gets easier. Let go of the bullshit!
What you can do is offer a helping hand, but you aren't obligated to sink with them if they refuse to put in the work to get out of the current they are trapped in.
DO YOU, BOO!
Take care of your heart.
Honor your emotions.
When you do, everything will fall into place.
If someone doesn't like your growth or the fact that they can't control your emotions anymore... show them the door and wish them well.
And, as always, if you need people who are actually in your corner and ready to support your growth, let's chat.
It's time to flip the switch and ditch the bullshit!
Are you ready?
