Sometimes we lose ourselves and sometimes we have never met ourselves truly. But in order to do so we must first open our minds and hearts to the truth about us. There will be habits and traits you may not like, skills you didn’t realize you possessed, passions buried deep under years of familial influence . These truths are within us …. they are gems that reveal who we are and understanding them helps us to fall into alignment with our purpose. We feel lost when we do not understand who we are or our purpose… and overcoming that begins with nonjudgemental and unbiased understanding and appreciation of oneself. Embrace yourself and all that comes with it . Love and uplift yourself daily. Get to know you before you try to change according to what the world says you’re supposed to be .
