A journey into Self-Acceptance

I’ve always felt different since I was very little. Like I didn’t fit in or belonged anywhere. Self-Acceptance didn’t come easily to me.

This was fueled by being a foster kid and then later when I immigrated to the U.S. But while yes those made me different, I didn’t realize it was much bigger than that.

Part of me always felt like I don’t have a place to call home. Yes, I have a roof over my head but that isn’t exactly the same thing.

And the more and more I spend time in personal development, and started to find my kind of people, they shared things that made me go “huh?”

I am an empath and I also am clairsentient, which to me, of course, goes hand in hand.

But there was more. Because I don’t follow mainstream very easily and it had me again wondering what was wrong with me? Aside, the fact, that I didn’t have to like what other people liked, it still made me feel like I didn’t fit in anywhere.

It became frustrating, to say the least. I wanted to talk about the latest personal development book, but couldn’t/can’t get myself to read it. I wanted to talk about the latest TV Show, to have that thing in common with others. But it still eluded me.

I have you know that I never watched or read Harry Potter, 50 Shades of Grey or any other show that people raved and raged about. I have zero desire to go to Bali nor do I identify as a Unicorn and I hate glitter.

But there is always light at the end of the tunnel and as I was on my own journey, I started paying attention to my intuition. I analyzed what it meant to the past and current situations, and came to the conclusion that my intuition repels what does not move me forward.

Think about it, if your gut, your intuition gives you a big fat no, it’s doing it because it’s your internal knowledge center. It’s connected to the higher powers that be to ensure that you are walking the path that is only intended for you.

This means that being a rebel, going against the status quo is the thing you ought to be doing. Even if it means you get the eye roll or question from those around you that may not understand.

And in the end, I am not so much different and neither are you.

Feelings and thoughts are universal. And even though we could experiences the same event, we’d come out thinking and feeling about it differently.

This is how your journey to self-acceptance comes about. When you can recognize that there is a commonality among us, that in the end, we want a life that feels amazing and that we are all just going differently about it.

I believe that we all are here to give each other a different perspective, to learn and grow from. And that may just be the best thing ever.
