When I’m working out-
I also work out my mind. I work out the hurt and the pain these last years have brought in my life.
I workout forgiveness toward myself- for unhealthy coping mechanisms that kept me stuck for so long.
I workout experiencing those low points and how now I have a deeper understanding of those who are going through dark times.
Working out Loss
I workout that friends, even one I had half my life, can walk away and because of that, I learned the healthy boundary of relationships. And that I have the gift of forgiveness and to love but also not to expect that in return.
I work out that being on this path is rare– most don’t take the time to find themselves apart from identifying as something-
- a wife,
- a mom,
- a success,
- college student etc.
Instead, I am working that out from the other end, finding myself, then success in what I want, and so on and so forth.
It’s empowering because I am not relying on anything to tell me where I “should be” or on anyone to make me feel valued.
I value me- because of all the humbling experiences that led me here and help me to show others their value too- and that to value yourself- it must come apart from anyone or anything.
