In a perfect world, people would be born with a blank canvas and be free to become exactly who they are meant to be. But life is messy. Instead, people get born into lives that are already complicated with layers of stories of untold pain and unresolved hurts that impact who we become.  We take on the burdens of others feelings and this effects who you are. 

As we move through life and encounter others, we find ourselves in a constant state of change, trying to fit in and find our way in a world that insists on defining people into categories. We try on different hats and try to force ourselves into clothes that don’t quite fit. This causes so much pain and suffering, yet we are driven to continue this pattern. Until we break. 

This is the awareness. The realization that you don’t have to be in a category anymore. You are your own definition and unique. You’ll begin to discard all of those personas you had adopted along the way, and you’ll feel free. Excited to reveal the true self that you’ll discover. 

We all get there. Keep going.
