For me having a zero bullshit policy is how I protect myself. This means that if I feel that anyone is messing with my energy as a means to trigger me into fight or flight mode, I choose to remove this energy from me.
This looks like unfriending people who troll and belittle my beliefs. Refusing to spend time with people who display habits of hurt, apologize, repeat. These cycles are harmful because they trick us into thinking that the healthy and loving traits that people have overpower the clearly unhealthy behavior that can sometimes be displayed.
If someone hurts me in repitition, even if they are sorry I must make the choice to walk away. If I stay in that position then I will only grow to resent myself and the other person for allowing the hurt to continue. I must empower myself in every moment to see that my inner peace is paramount.
The keener my intuition is, the stricter my no bullshit policy seems to get. More and more times I see how I have allowed energies around me to pull me down. I know my own strength and I must respect my limits. Sometimes the things that trigger me may seem small to someone else, and that is why I know what is best for myself, and you know what is best for you.
Sometimes I am tempted to allow these energies near me because I want to be kind, or because I am attracted to that which is different and seductive. Ultimately I know that everyone is on their perfect path, but this does not mean that I must be close to everyone in every moment. It is okay to take space from people. It does not mean that anyone is wrong or bad, it simply means that we are working on different things.
Doing my best means being aligned with my intuition. Trusting it strengthens my relationship to myself and I feel in harmony with my being. Isn’t this the peace that so many of us are looking for?❤️
