Should is a word to let go of
It’s a thread winding between expectation and identity
it adds to the fear of being found out as it watches us spin in our own heads
dividing us from heart and spirit
How did we learn to layer upon layer, the heft of guilt, responsibility and should?
Years of self-talk that once again we have it all wrong and that if only we could
fit our square pegs into that perfect space we would be safe and accepted and whole
When actually……if we shine a light onto our should and challenge it by asking ‘why?’
We are sure to feel freer to feel the whole lot of messiness and joy coming next.
