Who will give us permission to ask for the things we believe we are unworthy of?

Author: ebonyandcrows

Hello and welcome to my page~ My name is Larisa--a very common Slavic name that was either derived from the Latin word hilaris, meaning "cheerful," or from the Greek city of Larissa, meaning "strong fortress." Born in Ukraine, I emigrated with my family to America when I was still a small child and now make my home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Growing up immersed in two vastly differing cultures led me to have a burning curiosity about people all over the world. Stemming from said curiosity, I have fallen in love with traveling to other countries, meeting new people and delving into their culture, exploring new cities, and of course, dining on the local cuisine! If I cannot escape into a different country, then my next favorite method of adventure is to lose myself in a spectacular book. I enjoy books of all genres--from fiction and novels, to biographies and ethnographies. As long as it captures my fancy and holds me spellbound the entire time, I will burn through the book like a forest fire! Because of this penchant for reading and travel, coupled with my love of deep and mysterious things, I have been often called a dreamer and I find the title suits me. With that being said, I invite you to stay a while, perhaps make yourself a cup of tea and linger through my posts and feel free to comment or share a thought :-)

        1. Absolutely! There is no other option than to forge ahead and even demand what we need, otherwise we will utterly perish in the misuse of others. Even if those other people are well meaning. I’m starting to become unapologetic in my needs/boundaries.


  1. We need to learn to give ourselves permission, I struggle with this myself without a doubt but I think like with many we seek that external validation or permission. Often we don’t get it… Not that you need permission from me or ayone but you are worty, so get out of your own way and get it 🙂

    1. Ahh this kind of wisdom only comes with time and experiences. At some point you realize that people are fickle, even the most well-meaning ones, and that to get what you want, you have to muster past your own feelings of inadequacy, whether they stem from erroneous religious beliefs, an abusive relationship, or anything else that hinders our ability to thrive. I’ve mentioned before that it takes a sort of impudence.
