Shudder at Should

Dear Maria,
Please Listen to me
Less Intensity
More Flexibility
Not so anally literally
Taking so much so seriously
Working your brain deliriously
Dilate your heart = more peacefully
And girl, have more fun then it flows easily

BUT what do I do I get so…

triggered when beautiful messages are shared with a should
If I knew how to completely cut this trigger I swear I would
Trying to see that each time presents an opportunity
To live out why it means so much to me
Listen beneath the words…someones’ truth is being reported
Celebrate their lived out intentions to inspire and be supportive

I investigated the many varying uses in the dictionary
Maybe we interpret this word differently
So let me try and explain that might add Clarity
Because beneath my frustration also lies a melody
That sings of celebrating intrinsically motivated autonomy
Its my way to live out Buddha’s advice “to be lamps unto yourselves”
And only accept as Truth that which resonates with each self

I often interpret “should” as someone believing they know another’s highest interest
While we share what has worked for us, we can’t be another’s compass
So to get so angry when I read or hear it, is me being painfully contradictory
I really do not want to be the Word Police using power to promote misery

.. to live out with my speech that we all have a choice
And avoid any presumed pressure when hearing my voice

I am curious though, care to fill out a questionnaire?

Which words would you prefer to hear?

Would you be willing to commit to…..
I command you to………….

I want to inspire you
I require of you

You have to…
You can choose to…

You should…
I believe this will benefit you…

Words have power on perception
Alter the source of motivation
From the Outside
where your soul resides


I feel….
Concerned; I really want people to be as receptive as possible
to your insight or suggestion, without any linguistic obstacle

I told myself a story that people purposely reject my suggestions just to test me
Or they see no value in them and go out of their way to do the opposite and reject me
And therein lies my fear of failing to live out my purpose and everyone hating me
Trying to fill the shoes I broke in before but don’t remember ever wearing, HELP ME!
Tried so hard to find the magic peace formula to hand out and get everyone on board with me
Realized there are so many formulas to be found and this is way bigger than me
We are all rowing our little boats out to board a mega ship to alchemize all our flavors
Brewing all of our freak flavors together to make a love potion we all can savor
