I refuse to treat you as fragile.
I understand you have been through hell.
I understand you have been cruelly kicked down and belittled.
I understand your heart has been broken many times.
I understand you have been betrayed by those you loved.
I understand you feel so broken you don’t even know if you can get up again.
I understand you’re unbelievably tired.
I understand your finances, energy, and focus are at rock bottom.
I understand you have tried your hardest and still felt it wasn’t enough.
I understand you have lost hope it could ever get better.
And I still refuse to treat you as fragile.
Because I also know there is a Warrior in there.
I will not do you another disservice by selling you the story you still need to be rescued and saved. That you are still at the mercy of someone else.
Because you’re not.
You, Love, have been lied to. You’ve been sold a bullshit story that says you can’t do this on your own. That you must rely on someone else for your protection. That you must rely on someone else to respect you and treat you with dignity. That you must rely on someone else to provide for you.
But you don’t.
YOU have EVERYTHING you need. YOU are FULLY capable of providing for yourself ABUNDANTLY. YOU are FULLY capable of having your own back and enforcing high standards to access your space.
At one time, I fully believed I needed help. That I needed something outside of myself. That I needed more RESOURCES and that my own RESOURCEFULNESS was not enough.
I thought I needed extra discounts.
I thought I needed freebies.
I thought I needed a few handouts.
I thought I needed someone to back me up.
I thought I needed someone else’s approval.
All of these things reinforced the idea I was truly not capable of relying on my own resourcefulness.
But I was.
The more I trusted myself and stopped telling myself I needed to be babied, the more I saw my own strength and resiliency. The more I stopped telling myself I needed to survive on discounts, the more I rose to create and provide abundantly for myself.
This is why I am committed to NOT babying YOU.
Because that dishonors the WARRIOR in you.
That de-validates your RESILIENCY and STRENGTH.
That reinforces the very programming and mindset that has kept you small.
You, GODDESS, are not fragile. You are a fucking WARRIOR. You are a BADASS. The day you truly believe that, is the day the game is up.
