My weakness used to scare me. I was strong on the outside but crumbling inside. I struggled with self worth, with guilt and shame. I felt unloved, unwanted and uncertain of what my purpose was. All of those things still haunt me at times but I have changed. I’ve learned that embracing my weakness and being vulnerable gives me strength and sharing my story gives others courage. My wounds are scars now, they are part of me but they are not who I am.
The past 8 years I’ve taken personal development quite seriously, I became obsessed with being the best version of me so I could spur others towards greatness. I found that people wanted to connect, just like myself they felt unheard and unloved. I vowed to show everyone whose path I crossed that there is something worthwhile in them. I promised myself that I would heal and that I would learn how to listen to God and be led so I could help others heal too.
Be intentionally selfish, take time to read the book, pay the extra money to go to that event, listen to that album that makes your heart sing. When you are your best you, you make the world a brighter, better place. When you’re anything but your best you, you’re just like the rest. Think about it. What’s normal? Normal is broke, miserable, negative and hopeless. You get two options; fit in, or stand out. I chose to stand out…and I’m so thankful I did..
