Some people be like Saturn

Your truth doesn’t need words to be. It’s a derivative of the One whose witness never fails or falters. So if others deny or downplay your personal experiences, don’t take the reactivity bait because that’ll enter you into a never-ending mental imprisonment of constantly trying to establish your truth outside yourself. Only love can provide the nuance that accepts your truth. So if you have to explain or anticipate invalidation or skepticism then that’s a sign that it’s an inhospitable space for your truth. Don’t force yourself into that atmosphere.

One response to Some people be like Saturn

  1. I’ve been dealing with this with a good friend of mine recently. It’s not fun, feeling like you have to defend your actions all the time. I know that her criticism is well intended, but it hasn’t been a very hospitable space lately. But perhaps my falling for the “reactivity bait,” as you say, is something I can work on. :]
