I’m noticing something really thrilling about myself this week… It seems I am no longer swayed by other people’s realities. In the past, when I got bullied or somebody tried to push me against the wall, I would promptly lose my center and even agree with the aggressor. Now, I’m beginning to be rooted in what’s actually real and accurate. Yes, I still have moments when I let bullies get their foot in the door, but my experience is that now I’m quickly able to smash that foot with the frickin’ door. Perhaps one day soon, I will learn to not even answer the knock.

“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.”
