upfront and unapologetic

look at a plant that is surrounded by weeds
it is stunted in its growth
it is deprived of nutrients, it is stifled

this is what you do to yourself when you choose to feel indebted to others
this is what you do to yourself when you choose to be a ‘nice’ person who is trying to please or impress others
this is what you do to yourself when you choose to try and meet other people’s expectations towards you
this is what you do to yourself when you choose to live up to other people’s ideas and agendas about you

/now replace the word ‘others’& ‘other people’ with ‘ego’
–the idea that the self creates of itself via the others–
and realize: this is indeed something you do to yourself/

to bloom get those weeds handled

stop living in other people’s heads
stop ricocheting around in endless mazes of head-games

get clear and take action
