“…I learned my worth. I learned that I needed to enforce it with family, work colleagues, and friends. Everybody around me was so used to me just being so relaxed and I was able to actually stand up for myself, put these things in place, and everything just suddenly changed.
I was a ball of anxiety before. I would get mad about things, I would cry about things and I had no clarity as to why it was happening. And now I feel so, so steady, so calm, so regulated and things that would often send me flying into a frenzy just don’t bother me the same anymore.
There’s no dwelling anymore – dwelling on a feeling, holding it, and giving it all this power. Now I feel it and I release it. And my day goes on.”
