When we are growing up, most often we do not feel that we can completely be ourselves. There is fear of rejection, ridicule and even being ….
We wear a mask to cover our true selves, play the part that we think will be accepted by our peers, play make believe just to fit in. The issue is that when we do this, we are not being ourselves and can never make real connections, friends and find our tribe.
For me, it took until my mid twenties to wake up. I’ve always been different. At around age 10 I said something to a peer who I wanted to be accepted by and her response was enough to make me pull back, retreat into my shell. I then began the process of reinventing myself so that I was like everyone else. That feeling of rejection and ridicule was too much for this little 10 year old to bear – especially since I’ve just moved from the city to the tiniest town on the planet and was desparate to fit in.
By the time I was 31 I’d also lost both of my parents. To say that I could not give a rats arse about anyone else would be an understatement. None of the people I’d tried to be accepted by were there to help me or lend any support. Not one. In fact (what I considered) my closest friend was nowhere to be seen.
I have a holistic approach which covers body, mind and spirit. They are all connected and I can tell you, it’s the most amazing journey that you will ever take.
