Are You Isolating?

isolating

I have come to decide that isolating is indeed an epidemic. I know, I know, most of us think we can do everything on our own. We don’t really need anyone. That is the lie we tell ourselves so we can keep moving forward and getting things done. But we lose something when we do that, we lose ourselves.

Most of us don’t want to admit to needing help, or that we are overwhelmed, or that we are having trouble dealing with life. So rather than admit our truth, we stay busy, very busy…and we keep our emotions inside. We don’t speak of our struggle or our truth, and we isolate. In our isolation, sometimes we melt down, yet we never share that truth with others. We fear what they might think. We want to maintain our strong persona.

Isolating is a way of keeping to ourselves. We can isolate even in a crowd. Sure, we are smiling and sharing and laughing, yet if people could see behind that, what would they see?

Unless we show up REAL we are isolating, because the fullness of us is not really present in the room. Of course I don’t mean get in a crowded group, break down and shout you are in pain…although there may be times it could be appropriate, depending upon the group. The key point is— What would life be like if you lived transparently?

And how safe do you feel in the company you keep to do so?

Living transparently doesn’t mean you wear your emotions on your sleeve, it means you are willing to divulge your truths. Where you have been, where you are, what you have endured, and what matters to you. Or more accurately stated, you are willing to be vulnerable.

It is in being vulnerable that intimacy becomes real. If you don’t have a safe place for that, you might want to change the players or circumstances in your life.

Reach out. Connect with people. Go deep. In doing so it is revealed to you the character of the people around you. It takes courage to live a transparent life, and it is the most liberating experience of all. You get to just show up as you, not vested in the views that others might have. Break free from your inner boundaries, and live life on your terms.

Wake Up to how you’re operating from past hurts, Stand Up for your non-negotiable qualities and Live Free into your next reality.

Life is not meant to be a struggle, and healing from harsh forces is a beautiful, gentle awakening to the one limiting core belief—the red thorn—that can be gently released (not extracted).

Cut Your Root of Captivity.
