Tradition is just peer pressure from dead people

“If we had to earn our age by thinking for ourselves at least once a year, only a handful of people would reach adulthood.”

~Mokokoma Mokhonoana

✨ A little note this holiday season that the only person who has to live your life, is you.

✨ If you bend over backwards trying to be what everyone else wants you to be, you are the one that needs to live with the consequences of that…

with the dissatisfaction, burn out, lack of authenticity & alignment.

✨ Sometimes, those same people that pressure you to do things their way, will be the same people that look down on you & blame you when you’re falling apart or not coping under the demands.

✨ It really is up to you to have your best interests at heart, to show up for yourself, to care for yourself, to support yourself, to mind your energy & ensure you don’t empty your cup in the pursuit of trying to keep everyone else happy.

✨ You can always change your mind, choose again, start again, create new ways, create new traditions, really take your time to contemplate what would truly feel aligned for you.

✨ It’s safe for other people to have their adult tantrums if you don’t do things their way. It’s safe for people to judge you or feel disappointed with you. That’s their side of the fence, not yours.

✨ No one is entitled to you (except your actual dependent children).

✨ Take care of you.

✨ It’s up to you to ensure you don’t fall apart.
