I get it. Being you is hard. Being you can be so scary. It takes courage and bravery to be your true authentic self, in a society that sacrifices individuality for the collective. Most of us are so out of touch with who we truly are, what we truly want, and our heart’s actual desires that we really don’t know what excites us, what calls to us, what ignites us. That’s okay. Simply having the intention to reconnect with yourself is all you need.
But please, stop waiting for permission to be you. Take it from someone who always thought that she had to hide, or to be someone else in order to be okay or socially accepted. You decide what path you will walk, and at the end of the day, you do not have to be anybody but yourself. Stop waiting for permission. Give yourself permission. You are not lost. Your truth has simply been waiting to be found, and that truth exists inside of you. Deep down you already know what it is. Trust yourself. Instead of seeing yourself as lost, see yourself feeling confident, embodying all the things you wish to be now.
You have everything you need to take the first step now, and all you need to do, is to continue- keep going. Take one step, and then another, and then another. There is great power in taking things one step at a time. There is great power in simply allowing yourself to be you.
