I was always very good at following the rules and doing what I was told.
Honestly, I was probably just being lazy because I didn't want to try something new and get outside my comfort zone. I would ask my family and friends for advice because I wasn't sure what I really wanted. I figured they knew me and wouldn't hurt me, right?
But then I started getting more and more disconnected with myself. Because everyone had their own ideas and judgments about who I was, what and how I should do things. And I felt like I had to keep up a certain image or persona in order to be liked and accepted. Little did I know, this was actually "lying" and I started feeling like a fraud. But the easiest way to proceed was just to continue this facade.
I share because I remember how stuck I felt and how afraid I was to change. As humans, we all just long for connection and belonging. I secretly wished that someone would just show up and tell me all the answers so that I could move on with life. But, the truth is, no one is here to save me. It was a hard pill to swallow.
I wonder if you ever think about how you are showing up in all areas of your life now? Are you fully present and 100% authentically you? How does it feel? Can you allow yourself to share a bit more of your truth? I hope you know that I see your gifts and would love to help you uncover your potential!
