Gold leaf reads: "And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom" - Anaïs Nin
Large green leaf reads: "I need no path to live for living is my path and I shall live as I believe" 🕊
It's vital to our own well being to strive for the truest and best version of ourselves. Sometimes, this means unlearning much of what is simply a lifetime of conditioning and can be painful, especially if met with resistance and judgement by other peoples expectations of who you should be, with little interest, appreciation or acceptance of your spirit which doesn't fit inside the box they've put you in, and this could be from those you know and love, complete strangers, communities or society at large.
They might also be in pain and your truth may be resented if they haven't learned to seek and live their own, and so continue to love them anyway.
With kindness, blossom on, and treasure those who support the flourishing of your soul 🌹
