Q: Dear Donnarose, these days I'm finding I have much different views than the people in my social circle, but I don't want to rock the boat. I like these people and don't want to lose their friendship, but I find I'm losing myself instead. Any thoughts? ~Thanks, Camille
A: “The way people respond to our changes is determined by how we present them.” ~Donnarose Melvin
What I'm picking up here is that you've experienced an energetic shift. And the things that now interest you, match this higher vibration. That's a good thing. However, these new interests of yours don't match those in your social circle. The thing is, people evolve as time progresses though some faster than others.
You can of course maintain your friendships with those in your circle. But over time, I sense you will find yourself gravitating more and more towards people whose energy matches your higher vibration. Meaning, you may decide to attend the Friday night yoga classes with your new Reiki Master friend, instead of the Friday Fiestas with your social circle. But don't be surprised if some in your circle start to join you and follow your steps in this new direction. Also keep in mind, that there's nothing wrong with your transition towards new views and interests, unless you make something wrong with it. So consider allowing yourself to be true to who you are now, and emanate confidence and peaceful energy when presenting whatever changes you made. And your friends' reactions will more likely match your energy. And your journey on your spiritual path will be able to continue with more ease and peace. ~♥
Q: Dear Donnarose, I've been told my low self-worth seems to have carried into my adult life. I lost count how many times people have said I just need to love myself. I did try that route, but I'm just not feeling the love. Please advise. ~Kelly
A: ~ “When we accept who we see in the mirror, the love for ourselves becomes clearer.” ~Donnarose Melvin
Saying “I love me” straight out of the gate when dealing with low self-worth for many years, is similar to someone who has never exercised saying, “I'm an Olympic athlete”. Meaning, some work has to be done first. Now keep in mind, some of the things we've been taught as kids or older, do not have to apply to us now. As adults, we're allowed to make new rules as to how we decide to look at things. That being said, consider that saying “I accept who I am in this present moment” is a form of self-love. Also consider that another form of self-love, or loving yourself, is allowing yourself to clear unforgiving energy from your system. An example of this would be saying to yourself, “Infinite Creator, for all involved, for all feelings of unworthiness, guilt, fear, shame, abandonment; for all hurts and wrongs we've received, or inflicted on others in this or any lifetime, please help us all forgive each other and ourselves, no matter what happened, please and thank you.” This process above tends to help with clearing the unworthy energy you've been holding onto, and makes room for increased self-acceptance. And as mentioned above, self-acceptance is a form of self-love. This can also help create an opening for improvement in your daily actions towards yourself. For example, behavior relating to over-indulgences to stuff down your woes, tends to be replaced with more caring treatment towards yourself. Self-blame, and judging oneself also tends to decrease. This forgiveness process also complements any therapy you may choose to receive. If you consider applying all the above along with other effective options of treatment, don't be surprised as you continue on this path, you start allowing yourself to finally feel the love.
