STRUGGLING WITH CONNECTING TO YOUR INNER SENSE OF SELF?
I'VE FELT THAT.
I WAS PUSHED OUT
In kindergarten, my teacher had me pick up trash in front of three different classes as a punishment. She rewarded me by allowing me to talk to the class turtle. In seventh grade, my trip to the blacks and wax museum was threaten because the top three buttons of my shirt wasn't fasten. I wasn't a "bad student" but I was suspended for 11 days at a time with no adult supervision.
MY DAD PASSED AWAY BEFORE I TURNED 10.
I did not have the language for lost, grief, or spirit when my dad died. I had to detach from "what ifs" and open myself up to learn valuable lessons, messages that my dad wasn't able to teach me. I had to parent parts of me that was afraid after I experience this trauma.
I FELT LESS THAN EVERYTIME
I GOT FIRED
The first three times were devastating. Then I learned about entrepreneurship. No, it doesn't mean I get to do what I want all the time. I had to strengthen my weaknesses that I had while working for others and integrate my strengths that got me the jobs
I WAS REJECTED.
There are things that I wanted to be a part of from schools, relationships, and purchases that were denied and left me feeling like I wasn't good enough.
