It’s hard to be true to yourself and find healing when you’re still clinging to the past. It’s hard to tell yourself the truth because admitting the truth means accepting where you are in your life.
I never thought I was a person who ran from their problems. I always considered myself to be self-aware. Recently I realized that is not always the case. This is my journey back to myself. I don’t know how long it might take, but I know that I need to find positivity in every part of the adventure.
You see for the majority of my life I have been running from something. I have been running from my pain, my problems, and most detrimentally my identity. Furthermore, I have been blaming other people far too long rather than taking responsibility for where I am at. In truth, I am the only one who can truly make the decision to fight for myself. It’s time for a change and to face my problems. To fight for me.
A Different Perspective
I’m not sure I know what it feels like to feel like me because I’m not sure who I am. I have been numbing myself to the world. There’s excitement in getting to know yourself. This isn’t an appeal for sympathy. I want to be able to talk about my problems in the hope that I can shed a light for others. That’s why there is power in sharing our stories and our pain. Problem-solving tools are my weapons while my friends and family provide my relief.
People need to realize that while their struggles might feel unique to them, on some level we all wrestle with similar problems. We must be mindful that there is always help available. A lot of times it can be embarrassing to talk about mistakes from the past. I think it’s taken me a long time to grow up. I imagine a place where we can all get the help we need and have the discussions we need to further ourselves.
