transitioning from self improvement land, which creates a mental checklist:
“I should be putting this energy toward something creative”
“I should be reading”
“I should be exercising”
But more so self acceptance:
Accepting where you are right now
Celebrating wins large and small
Learning from your losses
to leave the world with as little regret as possible
The only way you can exist in several places simultaneously is in the hearts of those who love you.
Most of us are functioning from a false persona that was handed down to us through trauma, through indoctrination, through social conditioning, and it's in solitude that you get to step outside of yourself, look back on your life and declare clearly that this is no reflection of who I really am.
