Soul Growth Behind the Plate
November 16, 2021
I love watching him play baseball at a high level. Sure blocks and hits are great but what I really love is watching the evolution of his soul. I watch him do hard things even when he’s scared, and it’s inspiring.
Over the last few months, I have watched his perfectionistic people pleasing nature start to open up to freedom, worthiness, independence, boundaries and great decision making. What is really under that people pleaser part is a deep-rooted fear of being a disappointment and ultimately of being unlovable. This season has been all about him releasing the part of him that believes he has to please EVERYONE, ALL OF THE TIME; me, his dad, coaches, the team. It has been about showing him how this belief actually makes him tighter, slower, more restricted and not operating at his fullest potential. This belief is actually in direct opposition to the desired outcome of pleasing someone else. Basically NO ONE is pleased by the pleaser. When we are in the mindset of pleasing others it alters our experiences as we try to manage others’ responses and reactions to us in an effort to not disappoint. It requires us to try and control others and situations in order to feel safe.
He’s been doing his reps in the weight room, at the batting cages and most importantly in his mindset. He now understands that his worthiness isn’t tied to a perfect game, a batting average, or a strike out. His worthiness is always in-tact. It never dips, never changes and can never be taken away. It is his birth right. He also understands that pleasing, managing or saving others was never part of this gig called life. He, like every human here, came to live out the greatest version of himself for the evolution of his soul. Part of that journey is to make mistakes, fail, get back up, try again and the only way to do that is to know he is always worthy regardless of the outcome.
Thank you, baseball for being one of his greatest teachers!
