16th September - Responsibility
Today I will be the leader in my own life.
Today I will allow myself to know what makes me happy.
In school I was always the follower, never the leader. I felt safe doing what everyone else wanted to do. I never asked myself what I wanted to do. Letting others make my decisions for me was a relief. I thought I would make them happy if I agreed with their plans.
I grew up to be an adult who lived the lives of others. Because I never asked myself what my needs were, I denied that I had any needs at all.
Today I will let my inner child be the leader, knowing I have the answers to my questions: "What do I want to do today?" "What do I need for myself?" "What do I need from my family and friends?" Today I will lead my own life.
