Ever since I was young, and despite some childhood trauma, I always did all the "right" things, and basically met everyone's needs, except my own. I didn't love myself and had no confidence in my ability, which prevented me from wanting more for myself. I played small, took the easy way out, played it safe, and stayed in my comfort zone. I avoided challenges and opportunities for fear that I didn't deserve it, which was actually reinforcing an unconscious belief that I wasn't enough. It was crippling.
This pattern continued well into adulthood. I was perfect on the outside, and a mess on the inside. Remaining solid on the outside caused me to internalize all my pain. Because of this, I was inspired to become a Child and Youth Worker so that I can advocate for young people suffering in silence. My two decades of working in mental health, (supporting students, parents and teachers) has taught me one thing; there's no such thing as an adult. We're all just children, in bigger bodies. My passion has since shifted to fostering empowerment and healing through conscious and unconscious mind work.
