Middle years brings a new awareness of areas that need to be healed.
I was raised to be a good girl.
A girl who does what she asked. A girl who anticipates a need and fills it.
A girl who finds her identity is directly linked to making people happy, and not making waves.
A girl who fussed inside, but allowed herself to be pushed into situations.
And then I grew up.
In my middle years, I realized that I had ignored my gut, my inner truth.
So I started saying no.
I began to ask that my needs be met, too.
And I stopped putting my self last.
It’s a work in progress, but I am happier, and healthier.
What areas of your life need healing?
