One of the biggest parts of healing and growing is realizing you have the right to make choices and to not feel guilty about them. Often times, we beat ourselves up for doing things or creating boundaries to protect us because it may not be the most comfortable decision. However, we shall not feel guilty for protecting our peace, mental, and emotional wellbeing. Through my process here are 15 things I had to stop feeling guilty for and give myself some grace.
Stop Feeling Guilty For…
- Eating some ice cream or your favorite dessert.
- Not cleaning or doing laundry.
- Taking PTO.
- Sleeping IN.
- Not returning a text or call.
- Making a mistake.
- Needing help.
- Not knowing an answer to something.
- Feeling sad or not in a good mood.
- Saying no.
- Skipping a workout.
- Cutting someone off.
- Declining an invitation.
- Wanting to purchase you something just because.
- Needing some comfort or love.
Those are a few things that I had to stop feeling guilty for. I have to remind myself all the time, life is a journey. There will be twist and turns as I travel. With each step I will learn, grow, and become a better person. GROWTH CAN LOOK LIKE… Even on the the bumpy parts of the road. That’s when you learn the most about yourself. It is so freeing to be able to make yourself feel good without worrying if someone is going to feel uncomfortable.
Be you so you can be free.
