I have an idea of what I want to do with my life, where I want to go and how I want to be in this world, but getting there is hard.
I’ve had these thoughts before, and pursued my dream. While I may have achieved my goals, that didn’t ultimately bring me happiness. Still, time has taught me so much. It’s possible this time I could find success.
Today I have a better understanding of what holds me back, what I do to myself that leads to failure, or at the very least, failed expectations. I understand my mental health issues (well, still learning there) as well as the source of my insecurities — and the reality of others’.
The bottom line is, I won’t be happy if I compromise my future. So onward — commit to the future, commit to myself.
Take a deep breath and dive in.
