Ask Yourself...


If my six-year-old self could see me today, what would he or she think of me?  What would he or she want me to change?

(Answer In The Comments Below )
From "100 Of The Most Powerful Questions You Can Ask Yourself"

Nothing has the power to completely alter perspective and therefore your thoughts and actions and life quite like a question. Inquiry leads to understanding. The quality of the answers we arrive at, correspond directly to the quality of question we ask. The better the question, the better the answer. One of the most important things to realize about a question is that a person learns far, far more from the process and work involved in answering a question than from the answer itself. This is why spiritual teachers throughout history (including myself) have tended to pose so many questions to their students rather than to simply offer a direct answer. For this reason, I have selected a collection of 100 of the most powerful questions that you can ask yourself.

Make sure to take time to carefully consider each question that is posed in order to meaningfully answer them. And don’t forget to come back to these questions again and again throughout your life, especially whenever you are feeling stuck, because the answers will most likely change over the course of your life and also cause you to change your course in life.

She would be disappointed by the monotony and suffering in our life. She would want us to love ourselves and go towards our desires and prioritize our happiness.

My six year old self would not want to be me. She would probably judge me for being such a loser and so disrespectful of my parents. I had such a narrow view of the world when I was younger. What she would want me to change is how I relate to people

She would want me to relax. She would want me to do what I love, what I feel inspired to do. She would want me to love myself.

She'd be like "woah, you've been through a lot... didn't see all of that coming." I think she'd be proud of how far I've come but be a little sad to know I still hold myself back in some ways due mainly to self-consciousness. I think she'd want me to cater less to what i think i "should" be or "should" look like, and just follow my joy, knowing i'm deserving of it no matter what.

She would be silent for a while staring at me and probably disappointed probably angry or crying. Shed try to tell me where I went wrong and what I need to do.

She would tell me to get a job I like, and focus less on difficult relationships. Eat healthier. And to love myself more for real, spend more time outside, stop lying to myself and others, rather quit old relationships and start over a new. Shed tell me to just enjoy life, make new friends, and have fun, be glorious, be glamourous. 

She'd honestly be very disappointed at me. Crossing her arms, turning her back on me.

Shed probably suggest something like bunjee jumping or screaming in the forest or go onto a trip into wild nature, so as I might remember who I am. She would probably, suggest I cry, and just sit with it. Telling me, it is ok. Then though she would tell me to get up, everythings fine. Just do something about it.

I think she would want me to be more bold, be more special. More unique. More rare.

And she would appreciate me and seeing me. She would also see a lot of potential that I am not necessarily aware of.

My six-year-old self would tell me that she is so proud of me for overcoming so many obstacles and embracing the pain and its healing power and accept my self-hating parts with unconditional love. She tells me to validate the self-hating emotions that let them be so critical of me because they were under the influence of the sadistic narcissist monsters for over two decades She has made me realize that I should welcome the pain of the horrors of my childhood, that I hide inside of me, and welcome all my parts, good or bad, with purity, love, and kindness. The true meaning of self-love is genuinely accepting yourself in its true present form. She has taught me the meaning of true love and the transformative magic of listening with intention. I accept my self-hating parts and validate them. I stop resisting! I speak to them and ask them what happened? How do they feel? What do they think about me? Are they sad? Are they in pain? I listen to their stories, and I am always there with them in the grieving process.

I stop the resistance once and for all. I allow myself to feel every single emotion because I matter. I have so much purity and kindness in my heart that can heal even the deepest wounds. She also tells me that she loves me so much for being her mother. She feels safe in my arms. She is a child again who likes to explore and play because she knows I am always there beside her. She knows I can move mountains and burn anything to the ground that tries to cause any harm. She is free. Her laughter has so much warmth and comfort, which brings spring in the winter.

With love,
