I’ve always considered myself to be a very honest and open person, but this was called into question recently by someone close to me. He called me a con artist. Why? Because I wasn’t being true to myself and my platform recently. You see, I have been an advocate for women for the past 8 years. I feel strongly that my purpose here on earth is to encourage, empower and educate women on being true to their purpose and identity. But I’ve been living a lie, lately.
I have not stayed true to myself. In fact, I have given my joy to someone who I thought loved me, only to realize recently that I am not getting it back. It’s hurting me emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially. How can I encourage women to step into their own purpose wholely and freely if I am not doing it myself? I am trapped by my kryptonite…and it’s my fault. I can and am admitting this here and now.
That conversation called me back to ME. I refuse to be a con artist. It’s taken me years to accept who I am, and if the people I have brought into my space do not or cannot or will not honor who I am, then I must politely and purposefully move on.
So, to you, the one reading this now, don’t be a con artist. Stay true to who you are even when the world, family, community, etc. does not understand. Do not give away your joy!
Keeping you in my prayers to the universe.
