You wouldn't let someone sip from your drink and give you their backwash...you'd protect your drink. So why wouldn't you protect your life and heart the same way?
People have all kinds of troubling experiences. Likewise, it takes time and effort to heal holistically. When you try to move forward to have new experiences without healing wholly, you make a conscious choice to allow emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual backwash to enter your life.
You are your own gatekeeper. You are the bottle cap. Not everyone deserves a sip. Be weary of who you allow access to your life and dreams. Work on your holistic healing...don't be the cause of anyone else's backwash.
It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.
