I hid for years. Living as a shell of who I really was I was afraid to let others in. I was afraid to chase my dreams fearful of what others would think of me. Fearful that I wasn’t worthy enough. Fearful that I didn’t have what it takes.
I think most of us struggle with being fully truly authentic to who we were wired to be and what makes our hearts sore. Fear causes us to hide.
This fear holds us back from so much and keeps us living a false life. Afraid to risk we settle for good enough. Instead of calling we set out to pay bills. Instead of a vibrant alive marriage full of love we settle for a marriage without much of a pulse. Instead of living where we want to we settle for safety.
