You Are In Charge

I would like to share with you


Some of my personal story


That speaks deeply to my heart


As it relates to this title’s inspiration


I walked out of


A toxic workplace of 12 years


With repeated emotional abuse


Where I felt disliked by most people


Where I got bullied, blamed and guilted


For almost anything that went wrong


Where it reminded me


Of some deep-rooted beliefs


I had from childhood abuse like


‘I was unloveable


Nobody liked me


I did everything wrong


I was the trouble-maker


I was an outcast’


At that workplace


Just the way I did


From childhood,


I tried to disappear


I tried to be invisible


I tried to be hidden


I isolated myself


I silenced my voice


Each and every day


I lived in the dark


Like a zombie


I tried, I tried and I tried


To fit in and belong


To hope that


They’d like me some day


The more I tried,


The more I stabbed the pain


Into my own heart


I failed miserably


I betrayed my own heart and soul


I lived in such cruel worlds


With little and no compassion


With little and no kindness


Only with bully and abuse


From childhood to adulthood


That was all I knew


I finally saw it


What I was doing


I was done


Trying to fit in


I was done making me wrong


For everything that went wrong


For the very first time,


I listened to my own soul


I was choosing me


I walked away


With gratitude for all the pain


For all those people


For teaching me to finally


Choose and trust me


I was willing to stand alone


And save my own soul


I have never felt so much stronger


So much happier


So much more at peace


So much more freedom


So much more trusting in me and God


So much more love and appreciation for me


So much more healing


Than ever before


So what is my message


That I would like to share with you?


If you have got so hurt


Where you might find it hard


To trust humans


And forgotten the truth of who you are


How loveable you are


How loving and caring you are


How kind you are


How compassionate you are


How gigantic you are


How magnificent you are


How powerful as a healer you are


How much you have to


To offer to the world


That you be


Try being around animals


They are natural healers


They instinctively know


Who to be safe with


They instinctively know


Who has a pure heart


Their pure heart


Their pure innocence


Their pure love


Is what heals


Because they remind you


To remember the truth of who you are


You don’t need to fit in


To where you don’t belong


Buying into others’ judgments of you


For their love and approval


They are wrong people for you


Their opinions about you don’t matter


Never allow them to run your life


They don’t define who you are


Your opinions of you matter


YOU define who you are


YOU are in charge


All you need is your love and approval


God’s love and approval of you


Your pure heart


That is where you belong


You got this. One step at a time.
