Nevertheless, No matter what I achieved I never felt good enough, validated enough, or wanted enough. I ended up with a lot of anger, loneliness, and shame and no idea how to cope. My view of self became compartmentalize and I began separating my body from my soul, my soul from my mind, and my mind from my body. I was restricting the wholeness of my identity. What I needed was a soft place to land- somewhere to show up, be seen, and cared for not despite my imperfections but for them.
I have found that many of us have never had space that felt soft enough for us to be messy, fall down, and not feel too broken to get back up. Well, that is exactly what you will do with me. We open up, we get messy, and we fall a lot. However, we get back up a lot too. And when we discover the strength we have to stand up the fall stops feeling so important. You weren’t made to be perfect- you were made to be you, let’s find who that is.
