Growth is embarassing

Yesterday’s post was a little was an audio narration and a diagram that I did on the process of getting unstuck..

This is a follow-up, in that another very essential component of healing is those periods when you’ve got to make a hard left – a turn – based on what you discover about yourself whilst recreating your narrative. Those moments are often embarrassing, because you go, ‘Wow, that’s what I was doing?! That’s how I looked doing it?!’ 🤦🏾‍♂️

It’s okay. You’ll survive. Break your shame button..and go ahead and grow. You don’t have to stay the same and you are more than worth the difficulties involved with changing.

This is my favorite post to repost..never gets old.

Think of losing your front tooth at age 6 or so, and having to go to school the next day with a big gap in your smile, with the other children laughing at you.

Your new and permanent tooth will replace it soon but in that moment, you either wish to stop going to school altogether or stop smiling.

Growth is embarrassing.

And if you want to grow, there’ll be times when you want to hide from the world because you are ‘under construction’.

I’ve been embarrassed so many times, I think my shame button is broken.

Nobody wants to walk around grinning for people to see their tooth that fell out..but, I don’t see any other way to get a new tooth. Do you? 🤷🏾‍♀️”
