A number of instances over the past year have called me to check in with my deepest values and take a stand on issues and in relationships in a way that has not always been comfortable.
For someone who has always been a pleaser, who used to need everyone to like her to feel okay about herself, standing for what I believe in – against criticism – taking a stand has been something I’ve shied away from.
Now having shed the need for full acceptance, I find myself taking stands for justice, love, peace, and integrity.
What I see is that this stand creates dichotomy, and yet, that separateness is love in compassion.
Where can you stand for yourself and your values?
Your stand will inspire…both you and those wanting to receive your truth.
