Be Yourself ANYWAY

Don’t fear the judgment or disapproval of others…

Set your Boundaries. Draw clear lines that Say what is acceptable and tolerable in YOUR world and what is NOT. Your boundaries are your FREEDOM from unrepentant emotional tyrants as well as apologetic emotional leeches (and I do mean ‘leeches’ in the nicest way possible). Set your boundaries fearlessly. Everybody wants their own way. Why shouldn’t you have yours? Giving someone else the right to wrong you is like poisoning your own food and blaming your hand.

Don’t fear the judgment or disapproval of others…

Follow your dreams. If you step into Anyone else’s dreams it becomes a nightmare for you, no matter how nice that other person’s dream is. Any dream that doesn’t have you as the central figure typically has you as a servant or slave to someone else.

Don’t fear the judgment or disapproval of others…

Climb the ladder and break glass ceilings. And when you get there and shattered glass is falling all around you- breathe. If the people whose judgment and disapproval you feared are still around, you didn’t climb high enough. Oh Well, higher ceilings to shatter with your higher concept of your self. Climb, climb, climb… And don’t look behind.

Don’t fear the judgment or disapproval of others…

Break records and make records. Quit while you’re ahead. Run your race and start a whole other game when you are ready. Many won’t understand, but that many haven’t broken any records.

Don’t fear the judgment or disapproval of others…

Guard your own moral standards without bowing to the self-righteousness of others. Very often, the ones who sit in judgment of you from their moral high ground have only climbed there with their mouths, not their actions.

Don’t fear the judgment or disapproval of others…

Be good to yourself. Be VERY good to yourself. Be RIDICULIUSLY good to yourself

Don’t fear the judgment or disapproval of others…

Give your best to the world without embarrassment or reservation and let go of anything or anyone who does not see the best in you.

Don’t fear the judgment or disapproval of others…

Be unapologetic about saying ‘no’ or ‘goodbye’ to people who violate your codes. Even if their following is large and ‘legion’ let them go. Even if they attack and vilify you from multiple angles let them go. So often, people who feel they have a right to speak into your life and about your actions just don’t understand because they can’t. People speak from their own consciousness. A thief will never truly understand the concept of abundance. He sees inadequacy everywhere in HIS life…from his own mind. A ‘hater’ will never understand a ‘lover.’

When you see people and know or hear that they are, or have been judging you and your actions… ignore them. Ignore them with as little energy as you have. In fact don’t give them even that much energy as to ignore them. Forgive them and then completely forget them and remember this: Nobody but YOU holds the keys to the truth you came on Earth to discover, express and live. If you give away those keys: you are giving away your power; you are giving away your rights to a peaceful, happy life; you are giving away your joy. When you give energy and power to the judgments or disapproval of another person by giving them your attention, you are committing a kind of psychic suicide. You are deliberately killing that part of you from which comes your creativity and therefore your entire world and being. Nobody is worth that. Don’t fear the judgment or disapproval of others. Just Don’t! MW AH Michael Holgate
