To Thine Own Self Be True

Written By K.Dynae
“As long as you’re being true to yourself, the universe will have your back through the good, the bad, and the ugly.” -K

I had forgotten about myself. I had lost what I wants and what I needed. In its place lied my inner child that needed to be rescued. That teenager that couldn’t ask for help. That adult that was taught to bury the pain and keep fighting. This feeling that overwhelmed me didn’t bring me to tears until I had no choice but to isolate myself. That time alone made me realize that in the process of saving the world, I had forgot to save myself.

Being true to yourself consists of setting boundaries and respecting them. Standing firm on exactly what it is that you want and what it is that you need. Self-care goes hand in hand with setting those boundaries. For if you aren’t at your best and respecting yourself, becomes just a little bit easier for you when you are able to not only know exactly what it is that you want, but go after what’s meant for you. It’s okay to take time for yourself to learn who it is that you truly are. It’s also okay not to know but show up for yourself and to figure it out.

Whatever it is that makes you happy, go after it! What is meant for you will always be yours. You don’t have to compromise who you are receive what it is that you want. What is not meant for you will either be a lesson or an experience. The choice within that I completely up to you of what it will be for you. Trust yourself, and who you are. All you need is a small seed of faith to keep you going. Don’t be afraid. That little person inside your reflection is rooting for you. And guess what? So am I!
