Do you remember that time when you were a teenager?
Where no matter what anybody said…
You were going to rebel against it.
I love those parts of us.
They’re the ones that make impact…
That walk their own path…
That create their own destiny…
I LOVE these parts of you and of me.
What do you bet?
Those parts got me my nose ring.
And at 35?
I still like it.
But here’s a tricky thing:
A lot of people get stuck in independence.
They don’t even know that there’s a 3rd stage.
Where we can exert and practise choice on
- who and how we want to be,
- what we want to do,
- how we want to show up…
But also recognise
- where we need help.
- where our experience could be better.
- where things could be more efficient.
So we can make greater impact.
THAT is the practice of interdependence.
The ability to give and receive.
I wonder what stage you’re at?
Are there parts of you still working
super hard to exert interdependence?
EVEN at the cost of your wellbeing?
A lot of our girls in SMP are
FIERCELY independent (just like you).
But I’ve also learned that
if you’re doing it all by yourself?
There are pieces missing.
I know that “teenage” part of you might say “NO”.
But what about YOU?
Would you say “NO”?
Or is it time to get some help?
