Knowing yourself and thereby fully accepting yourself is hard work. It can take some time to truly go within and let go of non-genuine parts of you. When you are in environments that make you behave in a certain way for so long, becoming your true self is a powerful force of stalwart change. Once realized it is like there is never a going back to what was, but only now with vulnerability as well as power you can change the world.
Real genuineness is in knowing you are not perfect but wisely accepting all of you anyway. Deepening your own self-care is a way to gain this self-understanding as well as self-confidence for once you own your power others know that they cannot push you around anymore. You are genuine within and can stand up for yourself, own your own power, but now also trust that the wise parts of you can now lead the way. You trust your instincts in ALL aspects of your life not just the ones which have been working so well only up until this point. Now you can finally judge all parts of your life with power, self-confidence and good decision making skills. Take the time to empower yourself, gain trust in your own voice, and trust that deep connections come as a result of once and for all belonging to yourself.
