The best thing that has happened to me during those last two years was the chance to take more time for myself and use that time to figure out what’s important to me.
How I want to spend most of my time. The things that make me feel good. What brings me happiness. And where I want to go with my life.
All of those realizations helped me a lot and gave me the strengths to stand up for myself and what I believe in, no matter the consequences. That insight was so very valuable.
I spent years doing what I was told I should do, while knowing it is not the right thing for me. It was always easier for me to stand up for others than myself, even as a child. I was very shy, and I wouldn’t have dared stand up for myself, but when I saw that someone was treated wrong I stood up for them if they couldn’t defend themselves.
It took me years to get to the point where I am comfortable to stand up for myself and be unapologetic to who I am. Take it or leave it. I’m just being myself.
Taking time to get to know yourself and find out what you want in life and what is important to you is one of the most important, valuable and hardest things you need to do.
My life has gotten so much better since I decided to spend the majority of my time doing the things that make me happy, that enrichen my life.
Honestly, what in life is more important than happiness? We only live once, we should spend the precious time we have happy with ourselves and we can only do that once we know what it is that makes us happy.
