When you grow up feeling let down a lot by the people in your life you turn into an adult that is unable to ask for help or trust in others very much. You hold this belief that you can't expect too much from people because they will let you down. For me, this has meant choosing the wrong people to keep close because my "normal" was being let down and having to do everything alone because that's what I knew. I've been in this horrible pattern of wrong guy, wrong best friend, and always blaming myself for not doing enough to make those relationships work... let me tell you, it was fucking exhausting.
Over the last couple of years I've weeded out the wrong people, kept the really great ones, brought new wonderful people in and I've started to baby step into this whole trust thing. Lately I've been pushing myself to ask my friends for help and share more of myself then I've ever been willing to before. The cool thing about learning to trust in the right people is that most of the time they don't let you down (I know it's shocking AF). I'm still super skeptical every time I attempt a trust fall with a friend, but every time these people catch me with their support I can feel myself heal a little. And trust me; I still make bad choices and sometimes choose the wrong people to invite in, but old habits die hard and it's taking me less and less time to identify my mistakes and to correct them so again that means I'm healing
Today, I am working on my garden. Gardening is one of my favorite hobbies!
A hobby can be self-healing. Hobbies can help you release stress and be more connected to your body, mind and soul. What activities or hobbies do you enjoy that sparks your inner play? One of my hobbies is gardening and painting beautiful pots. This is a picture of my beautiful garden. What do you think of it?
Think you need to be able to stand on your head to come to Laura's Advanced Workshop? Nope!! This workshop is for all levels and is "advanced" as we will dive deep into the philosophy and teachings behind the simple yoga poses.
Part of being human is that things hurt. And they might hurt for a long time. Trouble is, we don't talk about it all that much. The grief, the heartbreak, the fear that you're now an adult and don't know one iota what you want to do when you grow up.
So a little reassurance:
If you're feeling afraid, confused, unworthy... that's OK.
