Rejection or the fear of rejection will have you compromise your standards and principles just to be accepted…
For years I was afraid of “What would people think?” the very thought of doing something that is true to you and makes you come alive but afraid of what people will say when they see or hear, this stemmed from my father wound.
This fear of rejection had me tolerate behaviors towards me that did not align with my values and principles and it actually made me feel less than.
As I have grown towards my whole self and healing, making my healing a priority, I have slowly become unafraid of losing people, see I have come to learn that the right people the ones who are for you, they will never leave, they will stay.
They will stay even when you put up boundaries they will understand that your boundaries are to protect you, they will adjust to accommodate your new healthy self, but the ones who have a problem with your boundaries are the ones who benefited from you when you didn’t enforce any, they are the ones who took energy from you.
So be warned, when you heal from that fear of rejection, you will start to shed some relationships and your healing journey will become very lonely but don’t you dare conform to standards that are lower than the ones you have set for yourself.
Keep pursuing your wholeness and uphold your standard because those who are meant to be in your life will stay and they will cheer you on.
I hope you and I will raise our standard and that we will never ever have to lower ours to fit in, but let us be the ones to help elevate as we elevate through our pursuit of wholeness and healing.
All my love
