We each have a perception of the people of our lives based on our experience with them. We begin to build boxes in which to make sense of a person and their actions. Much of this is done through assumptions and where we choose to focus.

If we focus on the good then this is what we see.
If we focus on the negative then this is what we see.
And often people will get stuck in these boxes in our minds.

Though, I wonder when was the last time you thought about how you are doing this same process with yourself.

Although we put others in mental boxes and others place us in boxes… WE also often box ourselves.

Just as we have a perception of those in our lives based on our past we have this same perception of self based on our past life experiences.

We choose the boxes we want to focus on and often forget to rearrange when we are in the midst of change or transformation. At times we will hold beliefs about self long past the point of them remaining true.

Sometimes we see ourselves in a better light and sometimes in a worse light. We may own a personality characteristic that is no longer true or that we are not living out any longer.

In truth, there is no way to truly put anyone, self or other, as a human in a hard and fast personality category. We are fluid and ever changing.

When we choose to continually box ourselves into old selves… we end of sharing these perceptions with others either verbally or simply energetically. We participate in not allowing others to grow us in their minds and not growing self.

So while being able to make sense of our who we are and our perceptions of reality is important in making sense of our world…
It is also important to be in a constant check-in with where you are not allowing yourself to grow in your own mind.

Also this allows us to have some loving but hard conversations with self when we are not living up to our fullest potential. When we slip away from a potential characteristic that we do enjoy about self and need to revaluate where we are out of alignment.

You can not expect anyone else in your world to see your growth and expansion if you yourself are not willing to claim it for yourself.

If we desire others to see us then we must first see ourselves.

I challenge you to take some time to to look where you are boxing yourself in and not allowing yourself to grow!

Love, Light, & Blessings,
Addison
