This is a new day, for you no longer have a need to follow the dictates or even interests of others. The result is belligerence that surprises even you.
Your need to please others seems to have evaporated. When you return to that posture, that clinging need to be accepted, you discover a painful internal discomfort. As if a wire loop is tightening in your chest when you move outside your self-love boundaries.
Such is so for several reasons, including the need for you to travel your path instead of paths selected by others. But it is more profound than mere social acceptance. That tightening tells you – and others once they discover the same for themselves – that you are no longer the malleable being others expect.
You have declared your independence. Not only within yourself but to your outer-world.
