I used to live my life according to other people’s expectations. I was so obsessed with making others happy. I had too many fears, too many obstacles, I wanted to be perfect for others. I wore a mask every day and convinced myself I was happy. I knew I was different and I struggled to fit in for quite some time. I kept it to myself for a very long time, I was miserable, but I was so good at pretending and nobody really knew. Then I reached a breaking point, and I couldn’t pretend anymore. I had to break myself free, get rid of all my fears and finally be myself. Once I got rid of my fears, I was able to be myself and make the necessary changes to embrace my freedom. It is only when I was able to embrace my freedom that I found my true self.
