For a good chunk of my twenties, I felt out of touch with myself.
If someone asked me what I wanted to do, I saw it as a frustrating game of trying to guess what they wanted. If someone asked me how I felt, I often wouldn’t be able to answer.
I just didn’t know, and I didn’t think it was important.
My life revolved around people-pleasing and achieving at work. I wanted to be perfect and successful and to give people what they wanted so they’d like me.
That made discovering who *I* was and what *I* actually cared about very low on my list of priorities.
It took a lot of work to, first, even realize there was something wrong with that, and second, to begin to change it.
This is the first year that I’ve felt like I could step into everything I’ve been practicing and actually feel at home in myself.
So I wanted to share some of the things I learned along the way.
Is there something on this that list feels relevant to what you’re thinking about this year? 🎈
Warmly yours on my 30th birthday,
