It’s Time to Raise Your Standards
Why is it that raising standards can feel so arduous, such a drawn out struggle? You know what you want, but you keep settling for the same shit over and over again. Maybe you have gotten sick of it, sick of the pattern, sick of yourself. Maybe even to the point that you have given up on wanted something more. Maybe you have settled into a dispassionate and comfortable groove of mediocrity... a.k.a. settling.
We stay in less-than-ideal situations because in the moment it feels easier to deal, or compromise, or get it over with, than it is to make a fuss. We feel guilty for wanting more, wanting something else. Feeling like our desires are selfish, that we are ungrateful for what we have been given. So we make due. This behaviour of settling is as old as the sun, a force that feels as firm as gravity. It takes major oomph to push in the other direction. So this is your little reminder that......
HELLOOOOOO YOU ARE WORTH IT AND YOU CAN DO IT AND ITS TIME TO GET OUT OF THE SHITTY PILE OF SHIT YOU HAVE TOLERATED FOR TOO LONG AND YEAH YOU'VE DECORATED IT TO LOOK PRETTY BUT ITS STILL A PILE OF SHIT AND REMEMBER YOU HAVE LEGS SO ITS TIME TO GET UP AND GOOOOO OKAY!??
Stop doubting yourself. You are the only thing holding you back. If you want something to be different, than you deserve it to be so. It does not mean that you are not grateful. It does not mean that you are selfish. It does not mean that you are an insatiable, greedy, bitch. Nope, nope, nope. Trust yourself. Your desire is wise. It is older than you know. It is your intuition nudging you along a path that sometimes haspretty poor visibility. So take the next step. You are being guided for a reason. You are being asked to stand up for yourself in big ways. To defend that little voice like it matters. Because it does.
Love yourself. Honor yourself. Stand up for yourself.
