Claim Your Freedom and Make Your Mistakes Your Own

One thought on “Claim Your Freedom and Make Your Mistakes Your Own”

  1. My instinct is to say “not me! I’ve always made changes when I felt the urge – I moved on – I broke free!” And to an extent, that’s true. (that is, after I came to the fork that forced the issue.)

    However, just the other day, when my husband shared a picture to facebook, of me drunkenly goofing off at a festival, and my mom chimed in the comments, I realized that the “shame/guilt” I felt from her comment means I haven’t fully accepted my own choices. No more! That was another lesson. I’m not ashamed that I was having fun and took a picture with a mascot. I’m not embarrassed to be called “my drunk wife” because it’s funny! My mom may not have been trying to lay guilt, anyway – maybe her comment was in amusement!

    We act, and either we own our actions, or we are slaves to others’ notions.
