I have a bad habit. I get so wrapped up in… things, that I lose sight of myself, who I am, what I’m about, and why I do the things that I do. The nice thing is, it typically doesn’t last long because something in my brain eventually snaps back and reminds me who I am. It’s like Mufasa in the sky.
So it’s time to pull myself up by the bootstraps and remember that I’m a badass bitch, and I can do this. I’ve got this. I’m done playing by everyone else’s rules – done waiting for people to throw me a kernel of attention, done doing what everyone expects me to do, done stifling my fire because it makes others uncomfortable. I know I’ve said it before, but I need to stop basing my worth on other people’s opinions. I need to get back to being me.
But there’s a flip side to that, too. Sometimes I get too caught up in what I expect of me. I’m too hard on myself. I create a lot of stress for myself. I need to learn to just be. What I need to do is get my shit together.
