Sometimes due to circumstances, a big life change, the dissolving of a long-term relationship, a health issue, or other reasons we realize we have lost touch with our true self. During these times we often experience feeling frustrated, scared for the future, anxious, unfulfilled and stuck. We feel lost because at some point we became disconnected from who we really are. This often occurs as adults try to fit themselves into societal norms, relationship expectations or are just trying to survive to such a degree that there is not the capacity to focus on anything else. To protect ourselves we may tuck away our true nature and shut the door so we can just get through what we need to get through.
At some point most of us realize we need to reconnect with ourselves, start loving ourselves and move forward. Allowing ourselves to remain disconnected and stuck in the pain of the past will not help us to achieve the love and happiness we so desire. It is at this point in time that we need to make a conscious choice to shift our perspective and reconnect to our true nature, our true self. Each of us has the power to change within us. Each time we take responsibility for ourselves through a conscious action that aligns us with who we really are through expressing our passions, strengths, values and desires, we become more whole. To do this we must stop searching outside ourselves for love and fulfillment and reconnect to our inner being to rediscover and remember who we are. The following steps are important actions we can take to do just that.
