We always look to other people to save or help us or give us the solution to our problems or distract us. But deep down we know that’s not sustainable.
We need to be our own salvation or sanctuary. As Megan famously said in Bridesmaids, you’re your problem, but you’re also your solution.
We need to learn how to be comfortable with being uncomfortable in our journeys. We need to believe in ourselves enough to think that we can solve our problems and calm the chaos in our lives.
We need to share our stories instead of keeping them all inside. Shielding others from our stories makes us want to bury deeper inside ourselves and our comfort zones. No more!
I see you, struggling but still trying, sometimes not trying at all, other times trying too hard to make something work even if you know it’s not the right choice or option for you.
I see you, not knowing what you want to do with your life or where the money will come from to pay your bills or how you will get through all these challenges and obstacles in your way.
But I also see you, rising up from the ashes, trying again because it’s a new day or even a new moment, wanting more from yourself and your life, knowing you deserve better.
I see you, not knowing what’s next but slowly moving forward, one tiny step at a time, figuring out what you really need and want in life regardless of what anyone else says or thinks or wants for you.
I see you, healing your inner trauma, getting back out there, trying new things, sharing your stories, whether it’s in a journal, internally or with another person, knowing you’re not really alone even if no one is around you.
I see you, making mistakes and fucking up but still moving forward, learning, trying, doing anything differently, breaking your own deeply held patterns and beliefs.
I see you, wanting to find a book or podcast or person to tell you what you need to do next in your life instead of wanting to work through all that rough and tough shit yourself because you don’t want to put yourself out there in case you fail (and you will).
I see you because I’ve been there, in every single one of those scenarios.
You are not alone.
I see you. Do you see you?
