Do you know what I am preparing for Easter this year? Nothing and it feels great.
In my weird new Age period, I used to believe it is a woman’s duty (omg, right? rolling eyes) to help perpetuate traditions. It sounds so toxic right now, I just want to throw up.
I was talking about spirituality in Therapy and we discover that this was a source of anxiety. When you study and believe so many things, some of them are confusing and you don’t know what to do anymore.
I would invite anyone to think twice about things that shape their lives. It is hard to throw away all your ideas and try to start new. For me was really liberating and I would not change a thing. Spirituality can be helpful but in a depression or in a weird time in life, can be really toxic. What I hate about all of the things I used to consider was that everything was ego-inflating while preaching how bad the how was.
Last year, 2-3 years ago, I used to cook so much, make things special, do Easter cleaning, get stressed over shopping for food, and decorations. I am so tired and over this. I don’t owe anything to the world, I am not that important. I will be buying some colored eggs, get some food to have enough until the stores are opened again, and spend the time with my husband and our cat.
Be careful and enjoy life! Leave some bricks out of your trauma bag and continue the journey!
