First coffee, then owning our truth

When we finally take responsibility for the situation we are in right now, and decide to do something about it, that’s when we start to grow.

First coffee, then powerful conversation with @rickibraswell about welcoming conflicting ideas and challenging our own excuses.

“We don’t realize it, but we’re making the perks we get from perpetuating our stories more important than getting the things we really want because it’s familiar territory, it’s what we’re comfy with and we’re scared to let it go. If we’ve been depressed or victimized or whatever since childhood, we trick ourselves into believing that it’s really who we are as adults in order to continue reaping “the rewards.” It’s how we survived as kids, but it doesn’t serve us anymore so we need to get rid of it or we’ll just keep creating more of it.”
