And what dream belongs to you or what husband belongs to you or what job belongs to you.
You know you’re on the right path, here’s your clue. You’re not put in a position to betray yourself, you don't betray your self, anymore, you’re not put in a position where you don't feel like, you have to negotiate your sense of integrity, which is an act of betrayal, your heart, an act of betrayal, you don't feel you have to compromise who you are, it feels, right.
You can fully, I got that, its like if you’re at a job, you know you’re really gifted and talented, people are not paying you, for what you value yourself to be, you come into work every day feeling like “I’m really not valued”, I’m not being respected for what I do, or my boss is unkind, or, whatever the situation might be, there’s an unease with you.
That's right, and so when you, have more respect for yourself, you put yourself in a position where you, can, you know, feel your sense of value or worth, that turns around.
That's right, and that's how you know
You know because you don't feel like “this isn’t costing me my power”, “this isn’t costing me my psyche”, “this isn’t costing me my soul”, “this isn’t costing me my sense of, I don't feel confused on some deep level”, “I’m not drained”… “I can be tired, after a days work, but I’m not psychically drained where I feel like I’m losing life” “and losing my self”, that's what a lot of people say
“and losing my self” I’m losing myself, why, because I’m betraying myself in some way.
What is the difference, because, I have a lot of married friends, I’ve interviewed a lot of people over the years who are married and everybody talks about how difficult, how its work, a relationship is work, its work
What is the difference between betraying yourself and compromising, because, that's what you have to do to get along.
Lets say that a compromise, compromise is when you willingly, willingly and out of love say alright a little this a little that, but in a compromise, you don't go away feeling like “I betrayed myself” “I betrayed myself, I’ve allowed myself, I’ve put poison in my mouth here”
Ok it goes back to exactly what you had said earlier, that every choice is either going to enhance your spirit, or its gonna drain your spirit so if you have been compromised to the point where you feel drained, or depleted, then you've betrayed yourself.
You have, and I mean, and the numbers of times someone will say to themselves, I wanna get out of this circumstance but I’m too afraid to take care of myself, so I will lie about how happy I am in this marriage, well, I will put up a front, I will lie about this, but they are betraying everything that sin their heart, they are betraying everything, when they say to me, Am I on the right path, here’s what’s true: You’re on the right path, you’re just not managing it that well right now.
You’re never on the wrong path? You’re never on the wrong path, you’re just not managing it well. You’re making choices that are harming you, that's why its hurting right now. You’re making unwise choices and you’re intuition is trying to tell you.
Making unwise choices, including the path that you’re on right now.
Right and the way you’re managing the path you’re on right now, and it’s harming you, and when your life path begins to harm you, then we have to sit back and say, you’ve taken a detour,
You know I just had an ahhaa listening to you, I love it when that happens to me.
I’ve often thought that, and its because you said the word betrayal, I’ve often thought, having experience being betrayed by a close member of my family years ago, thinking that was the worst that there’s no, nothing worse than being betrayed, and just hearing you talk about it today, I think there’s nothing worse than betraying yourself. That the worst, most ultimate betrayal, is the betrayal to yourself
