Reality hit me hard in 2020, my perspective and attitude needed serious adjustment. On the surface I had it all together, but inside I was really struggling to feeling like myself after being hurt from childhood traumas and a life full of narcissistic relationships.
Thankfully, going to therapy helped me peel back the layers and see my authentic self. I have always been big on self awareness, but I finally had the tools to make changes and that started with self love. Self love took on a new meaning of not just liking who I am, but giving myself grace and stopping the negative self talk. I also learned that to become high value by having inner beauty and high self esteem - no more settling for less than I deserve.
I’ve learned to put myself first and stop people pleasing my way into burnout and stress. I’ve learned to be selective with how I spend my time and who is in my inner circle. I’ve learned that protecting my inner peace is all that I need. Since all that I’ve felt as free as the breeze and I am finally me. This has been a journey of turning off my masculine traits that are revving to react, do, over perform, and protect and replacing them with my feminine traits that gracefully prioritize happiness.
