Over the past several years, I’ve been mindfully working on authenticity, issues with bullies, shadows of pain from the past and speaking uncomfortable truths. A lifetime of people pleasing and fear took a long time to rework. I feel like I have finally found my voice, like I can speak my truth and feel completely supported by my own inner knowing.
I had to make one of the most difficult decisions of my life recently in speaking my inner truth to someone I care for deeply. The weight that I feel lifted and the deep peace I feel as a result are astonishing. It was not without pain but it was right and I knew/know it deeply in my heart.
In finding my voice, I have found a freedom I didn’t know existed and it is very good.
