We forget that we are worth more than we will ever realize. Life is about taking the steps to make you happy. Resolve the issues that hinder you from being your best self. Love yourself at all cost because at the end of the day you are the one responsible for the changes or lack thereof in your life.
I started this blog as a form of self-healing in hopes that my story would help someone feel that they can face their hardest life struggles, understand that it’s a journey, and if you are willing to take the journey you realize that the future before you is far greater than the pain and misery you are dealing with now.
How do I know? It’s simple I am you. I know what it feels like to believe that you are not capable of being more, or that you cannot make it past that relationship, or if I do then what about that. How long will you live in fear of the unknown? This past year has taught me that the only thing that is certain in the unknown is the possibility that you might succeed, or you might fail. Truth be told I was in a seven-year relationship that I was afraid to leave because of the unknown however, when that step was taken I cannot express to you the peace that came, the realization that I was living my life for someone else. The love that I desperately sought wasn’t love at all. I neglected who I was, I wasn’t loving myself, and I believed that I deserved to be mistreated.
One day it hits you like a ton of bricks. Instead of saying what if, you decide you are worth more then what someone feels you deserve. The lies that you made yourself believe about why you should stay become irrelevant. In this moment you choose you not out of selfishness, not out of pity. In this moment you realize that You are Worth the Risk and you stop looking for the validation of others live your life and move forward. The first step is the hardest. I admit it’s scary to leave your security. Ask yourself this question, on the other side of this what do I gain? I know I have gained peace, love, clarity, perseverance, a sense of fearlessness. my favorite saying is “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” Henry David Thorean. My interpretation of this is if it doesn’t make me better, doesn’t add to my happiness, creates insecurities, or compromises my wellbeing It must go. I ask again what’s the worst that could happen?
-You are Worth the Risk
