Blog#5 Start being yourself genuinely and proudly

This is kind of a hard one because of my background but I have made some (hard earned) progress and I refuse to give into the feelings of unworthiness that sometimes come creeping in at unexpected times.
I am worthy and I have spent too much wasted time neglecting this. It has always been a problem of mine that I have carried with me as so much baggage.
It’s too easy to give in to this feeling because many base their whole persona on the illusion that they have it all together and it does their ego good to rest on the illusion that you may not be as worthy as them nor as knowledgeable, intelligent or successful as they are.
I intend for the future to express myself genuinely and proudly. To listen to my Inner Authority even if those around me do not necessarily like what they hear or see.
This has been a hard fought battle to get to this point and I know that it doesn’t rest easily on some when I express myself honestly and genuinely with strength and hopefully with compassion. I always feel as though I should be explaining it and then feeling guilty because of my expectations not being met,
The reality is that I am a creation that was put on this earth for a purpose to develop myself and be a light in some small or not so small way I want to leave a legacy of assurance. Assurance that it is possible to live a life that is genuine, proud, helpful (even when done your way). We are all works in progress. Take courage, keep the faith in yourself and be strong.
Blessings, Myrna

    I'm with you on every bit of this; except the expectations. Sure way to let yourself get shot down. Be yourself; without expectations. Because you are changing doesn't mean others will always change. Sometimes they do but even then it usually takes time, they are slow to "get it". I've been there; and yes it hurts when you grow and change and others have trouble accepting the changes. For me is was accepting my boundaries. My family doesn't recognize boundaries. Distance helps that a lot. But, after many years. They are starting to "get it". Alas, they still don't like it; but they love me anyway and I love them. You are doing a great job on your blogs. I hope they are helping!
