My promise to myself

I will stop letting myself, or anyone else hold me back from being who I want to be, or doing what I want to do.

I set the limits, I position the glass ceiling, nobody else. 

I will stop living in fear of judgement, failure, emotional or psychological breakdown. What’s done is done and I no longer need to carry that story with me any longer.

I cannot forget it, and that’s absolutely fine. But I no longer need to hold it so close to me that it becomes part of my story ‘today’, 'everyday'.

It serves no purpose. I have support. And I will have wobbles. But that’s to be expected. What I will NOT do is see the rabbit hole, and then allow myself to fall over the edge into it, time and time again.

I have achieved amazing things, and I am an extremely resilient person.

I will stop hiding away my passions, the stories I want to tell, the books I want to read, the music, the documentaries, everything. I will not apologise for who I am. I shall live wholeheartedly, and respect others - our differences and our similarities.

I choose what I give energy to now.

Nobody else.

Anything is possible and that scares me. 

This is my promise to myself.
