Change is afoot once again.
I did a difficult thing. I put myself first- selfishly- and took steps to do the things that will really make me happy.
It's hard putting yourself first sometimes.
I've spent a lot of my life diminishing myself for other people. Trying to squash myself into the shapes that they want me to be. Dimming my light, and bending to their will, and letting things go on their terms.
But I'm done.
I'm done, and I'm not doing that again. I understand that many people have not done this to me maliciously- and that in some cases, I have been willing to do it. But I can't, and I will not be doing anything other than the things that make me happy from hereon out.
It's a process. This is an untrodden path, and a long one too.
But I have incredible people by my side, holding my hands, taking each step of the way with me.
And sooner or later, it will be done.
