You’re going along and actually feel like you’re at a place that’s better than anywhere you’ve been when out of nowhere – boom. You suddenly feel anxious and like you can’t breathe, and it is such a familiar feeling it almost feels like home.
Home if you were in an abusive relationship.
Home if you were always told you weren’t good enough.
Home if you never seem to get it right.
Home if you just want to slide into oblivion.
Home if you just can’t fill your lungs with enough air to get to the rest of your body.
There’s a difference though. Where this feeling used to take you down with it and hold you until you tapped out – you now have the tools to win this fight.
You breathe the deep breaths of life that fill you up.
You meditate and fill your spirit with the strength needed to overcome the doubts.
You speak out loud your fears and take away the power.
You know – you are enough.
I am enough.
