This week I have been away from my usual scheduled life and have been writing for 12 hours a day. I was struggling when I did not trust myself and my capabilities and kept looking at other writers and scholars. Although I enjoy learning from all the experts and the masters in the arena of psychology, philosophy, and education, and I know that I have integrated their wisdom and knowledge within me for the past 30 years, I still had to allow myself to trust and share my experience of the past 30 years of sitting with my clients.
We all have something to say. This is very apparent in social media posts. The freedom to have a medium which you could share yourself with others has given lots of people the opportunity to do so. There is also a sense of freedom that gets created when you are able to share who you are with people. Remember that the sharing will not be one way, so when you share your opinions, others will also be inspired to share theirs with you. There might be some similarities, some differences, and some oppositions. You can see that in relationships with your mate, family, children, at work, and now in politics.
Maturing to emotional independence is really helpful and crucial when as an adult you put yourself out there and are sharing yourself. Emotional independence meaning for you to own your thoughts, opinions, feelings, emotions, actions and the possible impact that your attitude and sharing have on to others. Also, in receiving other people’s sharing, to be responsible and own your way of hearing, interpreting, feeling, and reacting and the possible impact of that way of being and acting on your life and others.
So, share yourself with people around you. Share who you are, your unique way of seeing things and experiencing the world. Your way will always be unique to you, it is your signature. Share yourself respectfully. Honor others as you share your thoughts and opinions. Also, honor the uniqueness of others as they share who they are. Share with kind intentions and receive other’s sharing as kind intentions. This is the way we can connect to each other, built trust and cohesiveness within our families and community.
