The storm that had been brewing just beneath the surface of my consciousness has finally come to a head and along with it, came the winds of change. Ready or not, I have been thrust into the harsh reality that certain aspects of my life will inevitably be altered as a result.
Like a butterfly outgrowing its cocoon, it is time for me to shatter the confines of that which has been restricting growth and embrace this transformation. To release, with gratitude, that which no longer serves me.
I strive to keep it real with you guys on IG but sometimes, in the real world, the push-pull of trying to honour my desire to be authentic with the desire to shield others from my pain, has left me feeling depleted and needlessly increased the suffering experienced by all those involved. As I move forward, I hope to find a better balance and would love to hear how you harmonize staying true to yourself while being mindful of the emotional states of others.
