As I touched on in my first blog post, 2016 has been a year of revelations for me. I think, above all other years, this is the year that I’ve really come into myself and figured out who I am.
I feel like I spent my last 2 years of secondary school trying to figure out who I had to be for people to like me, or quietly sitting in the corner worried that I’d say the wrong thing. The problem was that I lacked confidence in myself, and didn’t think that I was enough. But I think that what everybody needs to realise, and what I have come to realise recently is that you need to be enough for yourself before you can be enough for anybody else.
I can be shy and awkward at times and I get quite nervous in social situations from time to time, but I am me. I am never going to be the class clown or insanely popular, but what I am going to be is a helpful older sister, a loving daughter and a supportive friend. We spend too much time hating all the things that we aren’t and not enough time celebrating the things that we are.
I am only one person, I am never going to be able to tick every box. However, I am going to take the ones that I can tick and tick them well.
Always remember that you are enough too,
Lots of love,
