Fearing other people’s reactions to us is one of the top reasons that keeps us trapped in cycles of guilt, shame & obligation vs. acting from a place of our true inspirations integrated in all we do, say& choose. We may feel a sense of responsibility to caretake each other, but this urge can disempower us & repress authentic connection if done out of obligation over inspiration. The best way to be there for another is through your honest integrity first. When we operate from this place, we set the stage for transparent communication vs. repressing our heart’s desire while feeding resentment.
