Once upon a time there was a girl named (insert your own name here).
(Your name) spent many many years trying to be everything to everyone, trying to be perfect, trying to be normal.
She almost drove herself to the brink trying to please everyone and never quite matching up.
Trying to ‘fit in’ when the rules of what you need to be, are constantly changing.
One day (your name) woke up, literally, woke up.
With the startling realisation that, ‘No! It is not supposed to be this way! I am supposed to be myself, blaze my own trail in this life! The time that I am spending, trying – and failing – to please everyone, should be spent living, and laughing, and loving those who accept me just the way I am.”
From that day forward, (your name) was a much happier individual who laughed a lot and who felt at peace when the day was over and sleep beckoned. She didn’t worry herself sick all night about the next day and how she would make it through. She welcomed it with open arms because when you are not judging yourself, no one else’s judgement matters
Be like (your name).
Wake up, earlier rather than later.
There is a whole life out there waiting for you….
