I realize that I often apologize.
When I’m not apologizing out loud, to others, I am saying it to myself and cringing at the Truth of Me.
Why do I cringe?
Why do I flinch?
Why have I conditioned myself to apologize immediately for actions that are, and always will be, wholeheartedly me?
Why do I apologize for loving passionately all that I do and all who I love?
I’m not at all ashamed by the action of expressing love in all of its myriad and beautiful forms.
I enjoy embodying love of all things and everyone completely. It fills me up inside to love this deeply.
I realize I hide who I AM.
I realize I pick and choose to whom I reveal my truth.
I realize I apologize for others.
I apologize on the assumption that my behavior is judged, criticized, and unaccepted; therefore a possible affront and rejection.
I apologize on the assumption that they cannot accept all of me, and therefore hold most of me inside until I can no longer and explode in apology after apology.
I apologize on the assumption of others due to my past experiences.
Time to let go of the past completely and step into my unabashed AUTHENTICITY.
I’ve decided, no more apologies.
I will unapologetically BE ME in all of MY Glory.
I WILL OWN IT.
I will OWN who I AM,
Every day, with every breath I take.
NO. MORE. APOLOGIES.
I finally choose to be ME!
You either accept me or you don’t and that’s okay,
I love you anyway.
