58 – Be unapologetically YOU

Hey, Mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Mamas Daily Dose is… be unapologetically YOU. Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.

Have you ever tried to change who you are to fit in with other people, and you know how much effort it takes like, you’re almost exhausted by it just trying to be somebody that you aren’t? I’ve been reading this book called The Dark Side of the Light Chasers by Debbie Ford. And it is just, it’s really been super eye opening for me. And she uses this analogy of beach balls, and how if we aren’t, who we are, and we don’t show all sides of us, the good and the bad. It’s basically like we’re trying to hold these beach balls under water. So you have all these different beach balls that you’re trying not to show because those are the “bad qualities.” So you’re holding down anger and selfishness and resentment and whatever else you view as a”bad quality.” So you’re trying to hold all these beach balls down underwater. And you know what happens when you try to hold a beach ball down underwater for a long time, all of a sudden, it just goes and explodes up out of the water. And you’re like, oh, whoa, whoa, that wasn’t me. But really, it was – that is a part of you. But you’ve just been trying to hold it down for so long, that you are no longer able to control it and it just came out like an explosion. So we need to accept all these different areas of ourselves. And be unapologetically you!

Like me, I am a selfish person and I have definitely owned that. So that now I can control it. And I can use it to my advantage too and use it in situations that it’s definitely needed because it’s not needed for me to be selfish all day every day. But it’s definitely needed in certain situations. So every quality that you have is a good quality in a certain situation, different experiences, different situations, call for different personalities and personality traits, what is true to you. So just know that you don’t have any, “bad qualities.” Everything in you is there for a reason. And it is meant to come out because you don’t want that big beach ball. driving out of the water and smacking you right in the face.
