Do you have a strong foundation? I am not talking about your house. I am talking about your belief in yourself.
I was thinking about this during my morning routine. If you believe you are a good person, you will consistently be compassionate and giving to all beings even yourself. Your heart will lead you to do the right thing.
I try to follow that thinking or as someone told me “take try out, you are a good person”. I care about people, maybe a little too much which has at times not been good. For example, instead of listening to my heart and saying no to something or someone I have wound up in a bad mental, physical or financial mess. Has that ever happened to you?
Looking back I can see my mistakes. I need to stand up for myself and listen to my gut. When I feel “no” in my gut I should say it instead of feeling like I have to be what the other person wants me to be. Stand true to yourself and keep your foundation strong. Sure there are times when you need to be flexible but you need to have a strong foundation.
