A final realization: I am enough.
Tuesday, September 06, 2016
Recently I went to my 30th high school class reunion, something I was not sure I wanted to do. You see I have packed on some pounds since we were all together last. So before I went, I felt compelled to post on Facebook my basic insecurities about my physical shape (or lack thereof) to try to make myself feel better. I was overwhelmed by the response I got online as people told me I was not alone. This was also shared with me person at the reunion, where I ended up having a great time.
While I am a therapist by trade, I am also an insecure member of the human race, who sometimes needs reminders that it is ok to be human. My experience has made me want to encourage anyone who questions whether or not they are good enough, rich enough, skinny enough, to be part of everything there is in life, that you are ENOUGH, and then some. Don't hesitate to go, and do, and be. You deserve it, and I do too.
