I’ve feared being too much, and for some people, I always will be. I am here to leave a legacy of truth, of telling the stories we can all relate to but fear sharing. This is my task. I am as afraid as I am in awe of it.
How overcoming my limiting beliefs about the value and importance of teamwork helped me grow as a human being and an artist.
For years, I’ve been working on cultivating acceptance and curiosity, and here is this little guru, who’s known about these things all along.
Instead of trying to eliminate my perfectionism and labelling myself as an overcritical, overanalytical overthinker, I’ve learned to put these patterns to better use.
No matter how much I’ve healed, I’ve continued to cry about the things that have wounded me. What changes is the reason I’m crying.
