Story time: stress took over my identity. It’s a tough world to be vulnerable in but I want to share this today, now that I’m out of it, because I think it’s brave to stand up against shame. I’ll definitely feel ashamed again in the future — shame is a normal emotion to feel time to time (albeit a sucky one to feel, but human nonetheless), but in standing against that shame, we take back our power. This past year I was stretching myself far too thin. I wasn’t even fully aware of how much stress I was under until all my s**t not-so-gracefully hit the fan. I’m grateful to be on the other side of the chaos now because in hindsight, I just needed to do x, y and z to feel better. I recognize I need to forgive myself though and remember that it’s not “just x, y and z”, because even when the answers are right in front of us, they can be clouded by self doubt and self criticalness; it’s easy to lose sight of what really matters when our view of self is distorted. One day maybe I will share more of this chapter. For now, I’m happy to share that I’m doing better and self-caring more effectively. It’s been a journey!! I have a lot of great things going for me. I do appreciate those who have reached out to me. I missed these communities so much while I was taking a break. I look forward to reconnecting with you guys! All the love, Lexie
