For the longest time, I believed that I was the black sheep of my family. I would make my mother and sister wrong for never “getting me.” It was a perpetual narrative that I played in my mind...over and over again. It kept me from having a deeper connection with my sister and mother. You want to know what the worst part was? I really believed that I was right. Have you ever told yourself a story so many times that you start to believe it's the “truth?” How'd that work out for ya? Well, if you had a similar experience to mine..then it SUCKED.
I alienated and isolated myself. I made my family wrong and I never believed I was “enough.” I rejected their love. I was cold and abrupt.
The day that I realized that my story was a big fat lie, was the day I was set free.
Once you watch the video, I would love to hear: The next time you are with your family, how will you now choose to respond? What do you learn about yourself and why you get triggered?? I'll “see” you in the comments!
