Whose expectations are you wearing?
Let’s be honest, whose expectations are you wearing? 👀
I was tired displaying an image of perfection only to return to my struggles after hitting the upload button. I continued to struggle with fear, people pleasing and unrealistic expectations in silence.
I’m sure I sound foolish, but I was afraid of disappointing people. Somewhere along the line I created an identity out of what I thought people wanted to see. What would it look like if I openly exposed my flaws?
If you needed a sign, HERE IT IS! Your sanity is much more valuable than the image you’re currently struggling to maintain.
Take it from me, it’s impossible to heal from something you continue to hide.
Take time today to identify your deep rooted issues. It’s time to untangle your identity from that falsified version of yourself. Let’s do the work 👏🏾
