Maybe It’s Okay…?

tug of warI live a schizophrenic life… As I try to become a “better” person through Law of Attraction books, meditation (just started so have yet to feel the impact), and other such positivity experiments, I’m pulled back to realism and cynicism by my significant other who blatantly rejects the idea of positive thinking.

Then I scan through my Facebook feed (all I was doing was posting content on my business page, and got sucked in), literally brought to frustrated tears by the duality of thought that’s actually everyone arguing against each other over the same point.

My goal is to channel my experiences into helping others step through their own bullshit, and create a better place for themselves. I believe it can be done, the strive to accomplish it most important, yet I struggle to keep my own bullshit clear; I struggle to make the decisions that will move me forward…

Is it true that drug counselors are ex- and current addicts? Then maybe it’s okay that I’m still struggling in my journey while attempting to help others….Is it okay…?

  1. One of my greatest questions as a healer has been “Is it ok for me to be helping others when I’m such a mess?” The answer is no one is perfect and all my struggles allows me to have a compassion and understanding that I would not have otherwise. I currently live a similar journey of trying so hard to be positive and use the things I know and then being brought down by the constant negativity of those so close within my inner circle that I can’t really avoid them. It’s getting better. I’m finding that as I keep going my responses begin to change and I don’t always get pulled in. Keep it up! You can do this!


    1. Thanks so much for the positive response! It is an up-and-down struggle- some days I ask myself if I’m crazy… but even if I agree on a day, I still come back around. I guess I really am meant for positivity!!
      Thanks again for stopping by!
