Who are you surrounding yourself with?

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a TA (teacher’s assistant) to Danielle MacKinnon, founder of the school where I received my Soul Level Animal Communicator Certification (animalgurus.com). The other day during a class, one of the students asked if I had any suggestions on how to tell your significant other about what you do. Her boyfriend only really knows she ‘works with animals.’ Which, of course, she does…but he doesn’t know that ‘working with animals’ for her and me means we connect with them energetically and receive the information they’re giving us intuitively or psychically. So, you can see how explaining that to some people may not be the easiest thing and may bring up some stuff.
Now for me, it wasn’t ever really an issue telling my husband about what I do. He’s pretty open-minded and believes in this stuff for the most part and he’s been with me since the beginning of this ride so I’ve sort of been able to ease him it to it. Not that he really needed it. Other members of my family? Not so much. To this day, I don’t think my Dad really knows exactly what I do…and I’m pretty sure he likes it that way. His mother, my grandmother, was a psychic medium and he still refers to her as a ‘whack job.’ (I’m choosing to believe he’s saying it with love…) I think he knows I do something ‘similar’ to what she did. Anyway, because of the support from my husband, I’m fairly cool with talking about what I do to pretty much anyone. Which is why I was a little freaked the other night when all of a sudden I wasn’t.
We were meeting my Dad, his girlfriend, and her daughter and son-in-law for dinner. We’d never met the daughter and son-in-law before and for some reason I found myself all worried. ‘What if they ask me what I do for a living?!’ My hubby looked at me with a weird expression on his face and said, ‘Um, you tell them?’ I think he was a little concerned, wondering if I actually forgot what it is I do. And I really had to think about this. Why was I all of a sudden concerned? It came down to this. I was worried because I was actually going to have to say out loud “I’m a pet psychic” in front of my Dad. And there was that ‘whack job’ comment swimming somewhere in the back of my brain. I wasn’t at all concerned about telling these people whom I don’t know what I do, but I totally got pokey about saying it in front of Dad.
Long story short. We went to dinner. It was lovely. No one asked me what I do for a living.
But, it did make me remember what I told the student. It doesn’t really matter if your family, or friends, or significant other gets, believes in, or even understands what it is you do. What matters is that they support you regardless. And if they can’t…
You might want to change your tribe.
Surround yourself with people who love you for you. But give the others the benefit of the doubt. They may surprise you. But always stand in your power and don’t be afraid to be you. After all, you’re the only one who is.
I may go call my Dad….
