I want to share something with you that I don’t normally share with most people.
I grew up in a household where guilt was the name of the game. The way my parents made me learn my lesson was to use guilt as a way to reprimand me for the things that I did as a kid. Now, I was no angel, but I know so many people where they grew up in a home where their parents used guilt as a method to discipline.
Fast forward to today, I still experience guilt. The only difference is, I am aware of it and I give myself permission to be truly self-expressed and feel what I feel, rather than punishing myself with guilt.
Rule number one for any sort of change to take place: Notice the pattern.
Today’s Keepin’ It Real hits close to home because I have experienced this first hand and even to this day am confronted by moments of guilt. Guilt is a bottomless pit. Guilt is there to teach you a lesson. And that lesson is to honor yourself first.

Listen, I know it’s not easy talking about guilt. Most people walk around with a ton of guilt and they don’t even realize it. But I believe that when you talk about it out loud, you allow yourself to work through whatever it is that has been holding you back from living a life of true freedom.
I’d love to hear from you down below in the comments:
“What’s something you have been guilty about and are now willing to let go of?”
It takes courage to share your story and I want to thank you and acknowledge you in advance.
Here for you always,
