“Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.”
Let’s accept this..emotional bonds are always deep and strong, they influence us throughout our life. Many of us get driven by these bonds. Such bonds play a vital role in our journey. These connections affect our mood, thoughts, and personality. They provide us desired warmth in order to thrive.
It’s really unpleasant when we get tangled in these emotional bonds and start feeling suffocated. We depend so much on them that gradually they become the source of our happiness and existence. We lose the sense of responsibility towards us. Many times we get confused and frustrated between where we are and where we want to be..what is best for us as it involves a deep-seated conflict with people who are significantly important for our lives. We often give them the key to take charge of our lives because we believe they have a better life experience than us, they know what is better for us. Lastly, we lose the sight of who we truly are and accept to live in their shadow rather than shine on our own.
It’s really important to realize that these deep-rooted attachments are the part of our life, not LIFE. No one is responsible for us or our happiness. Happiness comes from within, and we channel that happiness to these emotional bonds to make them vibrant and joyful. Each connection needs proper space and boundary to breathe and bloom. Our purpose should be to gain a healthy perspective of others without creating conflict with ourselves. Just think we have only one life to live and if we live that life according to other’s choices when will we live our dreams and desires? We need to decide are we really happy and satisfied by giving the driving seat to other’s in life or we want to shape our life the way we envisioned.
Recognizing and acknowledging self- worth is essential don’t give other’s so much power to direct and define you. Remember people can only take what you will allow them to take. You can’t control their thoughts and behavior, but you can choose your reaction if you feel their choices and suggestions are not aligned with your peace and purpose, you have right to refuse and to create positive things in your life for yourself. Liberate yourself ..No one holds power over you, radiate your light within to discover yourself!
“If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.”—Joseph Campbell
