I used to want to be validated for my thoughts & feelings. As if they were facts I needed to be confirmed or as if I needed to be justified for my actions.
When I found coaching, I was reminded of my inner POWER of being able to CHANGE my thoughts and feelings.
From years of being coached in different ways from different coaches & of self-coaching, I have cared a lot less about being validated by others.
I don’t “need” to validate my thoughts as much because I recognize that a lot of what I thought were facts were actually just thoughts, and thoughts are optional.
I care a lot less about others’ approval because I’ve learned to care more about my own. I cannot control what others think about me, but I can control what I think of me, & that’s what matters most to me.
I don’t worry as much about how other people feel or try to control how they feel because I recognize that I can’t actually control how others feel. I can only control how I feel, & that is a beautiful thing.
All of this has given me immense freedom, more than I have ever thought possible. I give so many less fucks, and it feels amazing.
Today, as I was traveling & navigating a few airports, instead of operating on autopilot and feeling annoyed at many people & things, I reminded myself that my thoughts are optional, & asked myself how I wanted to feel.
What I really wanted to feel was at ease, happy & grateful. I’m proud to say that I gave more power to my thoughts that caused me to feel those emotions rather than to thoughts that would have caused me to feel annoyed.
It wasn’t perfect. It never will be. But, I entered a new level of clarity, calm, and freedom in my mind & body because of practicing this awareness.
This is what I love helping others do too.
Practicing our inner power is a feminist act.
It’s not just a structural freedom, it also matters what thoughts we’re giving our power to and how we’re feeling in our body.
If you want to experience more of this freedom, ease & confidence, then I would love to work with you.
