Genuinely not giving a shit about what other people think is a lifelong practice but it gets easier and easier. And it's the best way to live!
It takes so much JUNK out of your head & off your shoulders. And when we find ourselves caring...we gotta ask "why do I care what this person thinks!?" some pretty interesting shit can pop up. And I find that in the end it always has to do with ourselves....not them at all.
Doing the inner work...or as I like to call "dusting off our layers" is the hardest shit to do. But it's so necessary to having peace within us. It's like when we clean or organize a physical space ...we gotta rip it apart first and it always looks way more a mess in the beginning of the process; in order to sort through it all. It's the same thing with our inner work. We have to be willing to look at all the crap!
Once it's all in our face we can choose what we want/need to keep, what we could let go of, and what can go in the "fuck it bucket" so we can move on and have a cleaner, clearer, better functioning space!
Think of how good it feels to do this with our physical spaces. (Closet, car, garage, storage area etc) I promise you it feels even better when we do it for our inner spaces! 💜
