Voice and visibility are two things that have been very healing to me, but that doesn’t mean it’s not still difficult to put myself out there.
I finally clicked “publish” on a video I had worked very hard on all week. I went back and forth on whether I should publish it or not, fearing that the reaction might be negative. My hope is that people will find it helpful and hopefully provide the “Ah ha” moment that helps move them forward. If you’d like to check it out, you can watch it here. The video talks about a process I engaged in roughly 12 years ago that, looking back, changed the course of my whole life.
A lot of people can relate to feeling like they don’t like themselves, but it’s still a very difficult topic to talk about, let alone to put out there publicly. I do want to let people know though that there is a way forward. Back then I would have never imagined that I could live the life I’m living now, having a great group of friends, and doing work I love.
