I grew up in a very confusing and harsh environment.
I was brought up to think that love and affection were earned. I was told constantly that I wouldn’t amount to anything, that I had no gifts or talents. But, even among this suffocating pain of self-doubt, I felt in my bones, I deserved a life of happiness, success, and love.
As I got older, I began realizing how impactful my verbally and physically abusive childhood was on my beliefs, self-esteem and confidence. Yet, the hardships I experienced in my youth were nothing compared to the demons that would awaken in adulthood.
From age 17 to 25, I continued to walk blindly, living in the push and pull of my emotions. I had to unlearn all the negative things I was told growing up because for the longest time, I believed them. I spent the majority of these years trying to figure my life out. I was stubborn, independent, fearless and strong on the outside, but insecure, confused, and lost on the inside.
I was emotionally, mentally, and spiritually deprived for such a large portion of my life that the trauma I experienced during my youth left a galaxy of residue inside.
I found myself self-sabotaging for reasons beyond my control. I attracted relationships that were damaging and anxiety ridden, which I stayed in for too long.
I accepted job offers I knew weren’t aligned with my deepest wants. I never stretched myself for fear of failure and I moved through life reaffirming my “childhood identity” — that I was incapable, unlovable, and unworthy.
But the most difficult thing to shake was this deep embedded belief that I was inadequate.
I used to view my dreams as intangible. “I’ll get there one day,” I used to say, but every passing day I wasn’t following my heart, I was slowly dying on the inside. I became so fearful and overwhelmed about starting a new project or task. I’d become inspired and build momentum, but the crazy inner critic would shatter my drive. I felt trapped and paralyzed inside. I wanted more, but didn’t know how to get there.
At 25, I made the decision to change.
I didn’t know how or where to begin, but in the midst of all this internal pain and suffering, I wanted out.
I wanted to be happy.
So, I saw a therapist, read lots of books and went back to school, earning my B.A. in Psychology. I flooded myself with positive affirmations, surrounded myself with practical and spiritual mentors, practiced yoga and meditation, immersed myself in nature, and came to one final and honest realization…
That everything I ever needed was already within.
Today. . .
My transition from then to now, was by no means painless or graceful. It was challenging, and uncomfortable, but I learned that all pain and tears were necessary to cross over to the other side, to shed all those unneeded layers that were no longer serving me.
In retrospect, my experiences offered an abundance of insight, healing, and growth. My breakthroughs taught me a valuable lesson: That we all have the power to change and create a life of love, happiness and success.
