“Journey inward through the layers of shoulds, coulds and what ifs,
peeling past the not good enoughs
squeezing around the pleases and apologies
Journey inward and inhale the serenity that awaits.”
We think of journeys as outside of ourselves, but isn’t the most important journey the one you take inside yourself? The journey that takes you past the painted face that you show to the world and leads to the naked face that shows the truth of who you are and who you want to be? The you that exists below the people pleasing, the masks you wear and the words you say that you think are required to be loved and accepted? Aren’t you worth the journey inward?
