If you could freely love yourself into freedom, would you do it? Here’s how…

Really, would YOU do it?

You may be thinking, “Of course I would!” Or would you?

Sometimes it seems as though it’s easier said than done.

But really it’s harder NOT to say it or do it.

Today’s S.O.L. STORY comes from one of our dear listeners…you know who you are. I’ll refer to her (you) as D.M., because I’m about to share with you her D.M. to me regarding her situation.

This is what she says…

Can you relate to her story?

I can too! So many of us can! (You’re not alone, D.M.)

One of the most powerful statements that really helped me when I had a decision to make was this…

“I love you, but I love me more.”

You see, it wasn’t about choosing him or not choosing him. It was about choosing me.

What does it look like to LOVE ME MORE?


Freedom allows us to make decisions that lead to MORE freedom.

F – Fear.

Facing it. Feeling it. Finding myself in it and loving the fear in me.

Yes, love yourself by loving yourself out of the fear.

R – Remember who you once were (and dreamed of becoming.)

E – Engage with HER. Fully.

E – Expose the deepest, darkest part of YOU and your heart + soul. Then evaluate the other side of TRUTH within you, and see what you discover.

Then you will be FREE TO BE. YOU.

And from there you’ll be able to make any, and all decisions, while standing with yourself and not against yourself.

With strength, stability, and FREEDOM.

I sure hope this helps you today!

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) 


Take some time to journal about being F.R.E.E.

Take your attention off he, she, or we and put it on your being. Focus on your ME.

Also I’d suggest that you listen to “EPISODE 531: I Need Your Help!” and help yourself, my dear.

Please reach out and let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks again for sharing and asking your question, D.M.

And if YOU have a question, and would like me to answer it with a podcast — especially for YOU, please D.M. via email at drshannon@doctorshannon.com or D.M. on Instagram @doctorshannon.

I’d LOVE to hear from you!!
