Give Yourself Permission…

Sometimes we wait for everyone and everything–our parents, our peers, the media, tradition–to tell us what we should do, what we should think, what we should believe, and how we should feel. We let others direct our lives instead of granting ourselves the freedom to live as we truly desire. If that has been your story, stop right now. Reclaim the power you can rightfully wield over your own life. Stop waiting for others to validate your every move and do what you’ve allowed others to do for you for too long: Give yourself permission.

Give yourself permission to heal from the past.

Give yourself permission to forgive those who have hurt you.

Give yourself permission to apologize to those you have hurt.

Give yourself permission to love yourself.

Give yourself permission to love others.

Give yourself permission to love whomever you want.

Give yourself permission to have a good life.

Give yourself permission to believe what you believe.

Give yourself permission to question your beliefs.

Give yourself permission to live fearlessly.

Give yourself permission to be honest.

Give yourself permission to be thankful.

Give yourself permission to live according to your own values.

Give yourself  permission to validate yourself.

Give yourself permission to express yourself.

Give yourself permission to meet your needs.

Give yourself permission to not take everything people say personally.

Give yourself permission to have your own opinion.

Give yourself permission to make your own choices.

Give yourself permission to smile.

Give yourself permission to be happy.

Give yourself permission to learn.

Give yourself permission to grow.

Give yourself permission to be.
