Today is Independence Day in the United States. Set yourself free from the coward (or cowards) in your life.
The person who shames and blames everyone else and never faces his own shitty-ness is the epitome of a coward.
We are all imperfect, but we are perfect in our willingness to be accountable for all of our imperfections. Cowards are never accountable.
So don’t allow a coward to dictate and tell you who you should be or how you should live. You know better than anyone what you want from life. You don’t need some controlling fool screaming at you and belittling you. Or ignoring you until you feel worthless.
Besides, in truth, anyone who tries to dictate your life has no handle on their own. They want to restrain and contain you because your potential is so obvious, it scares them. They fear you’ll abandon them.
And their fears are justified! Because you do matter and are worth so much more than their treatment. Ironically, in their attempts at containing and controlling you, you begin to realize how free you could be, and you begin to despise and hate them.
But don’t feel guilty about your hate. Don’t try to turn off that hate. You are absolutely allowed to hate someone just as much as you are allowed to love someone.
Hate is a survival mechanism, an emotion that empowers you to act. Hate gives you the motivation you need to free yourself from the one who oppresses you.
And once detached and free, the hate dissipates, too. It’s actually very simple: eliminate the cause of your hate, and the hate will magically disappear.
Stop over thinking things. Listen to your gut. Walk away and be free!
H/T: Set yourself free from the coward in your life!
