I just finished Viola Davis's book 'Finding Me" and it spoke deeply to my soul about who I am and the things I have chosen to settle for. In my early 30s, I am still on a quest to fully understand who I am, why I make certain choices, and my vulnerabilities. This has been my mission all year and at times when I feel closer to being in my body, I make yet another questionable choice that leaves me wondering if at all I know my true self. One thing that I have been intentional about all year is being candid with my feelings -I maintain Emotional intelligence but I insist on being true to what and how I feel. The sad truth is, it has cost me very dear relationships but I am learning to trust my gut. I believe that we are all out to know more about who we are, the ME in ourselves like actually understanding that part of us not just the shell but the deeper pieces of us and it has been one of the hardest things I have done. But how could we truly practice self-love if we do not know who we really are, our boundaries, our pleasures, our personality Etc?
