PERMISSION

PERMISSION

As a little girl, I sought permission and acceptance from almost everyone around me. It may have been because my parents spent more time arguing and fighting over raising confident humans or perhaps the need to feel loved and wanted by an absent father and emotionally unavailable mother. Regardless, I allowed this need for permission to permeate into my adult self, unconsciously seeking permission from friends, partners, siblings, and sometimes total strangers. I realized that mere disapproval of my path would immensely distort my determination to move forward. It was in 2022 that I decided to start 'becoming Elle.' I got recruited by a model, and acting agency, which was a turning point-I learned a lot about being self-confident and not needing permission from anyone but myself. So for my second manifestation, I'd like to dwell more on my self-confidence, my determination to succeed, and trust my instinct to pursue more.

Manifestation/mantra: I will trust myself and not seek permission from anyone else. I will not allow others' opinions to interfere with my journey to success.
