Hi dear one,
A lot of us wait for permission from somebody or wait for a certain situation to change before we give ourselves a chance to develop an idea that has been brewing in our heart and mind, right?
My question to you is, do you really need the situation to completely change before you give yourself permission to follow your heart’s desire?
If this resonates with you, here are some helpful perspectives.
First of all, we might be fearing the disapproval of people who don’t even matter to us or who don’t have our best interests in mind. So take a step back and decide whose opinions matter to you and whose don’t. As for the latter category, make a decision to disengage and distance yourself from their perspectives.
If it’s a loved one whose opinion and presence are dear to you, and they aren’t supportive of your dream, it could very well be that they simply need to be nudged. Some people need to see the courage of your decision, your willpower and how you go about giving importance to your dreams before they actually have that “Aha!” moment and start respecting you for what you are thinking or your ideas. It might be their own fears or insecurities or a desire to keep you and themselves safe that could be the reason for their resistance.
Ultimately, the only person who needs to give you permission is you yourself. Give yourself that permission and the rest will fall into place – it’s not going to be easy, but that’s the case with everything that’s worthwhile in life. Good luck and I will see you soon!
