Allow Yourself To be Seen

Updated: Sep 18, 2022

It's hard to believe almost a year has gone by, I realize now that I haven't exactly given myself enough credit. Thus far I have been a veterinary assistant, a student, a free therapist, and now a writer. I've learned a lot about myself, my trauma, and my triggers. I’m learning how I can be a better person, friend, and a better lover.

I think I finally understand that all I have to do is show up and be the person that I want to be, which in itself makes me worthy of receiving. It is absolutely amazing to say that when you open yourself up and allow people to see you, the response you get changes your perspective on humanity for the better. I do admit I've been used to hiding, not only from people but from trauma. I have always been an observer but I didn't realize that when you experience large amounts of chaos in your life sometimes hiding becomes a big part of your personality.

At the beginning of the year, I started to ask myself “who am I?”, because I know this can't be it, I was told that I used to be loud, unapologetic, and unafraid of making waves. Lo and behold the universe decided it wanted to remind me.

Life pushed and pulled me in so many different directions, by simply acting on a whim I met the most amazing people. I learned compassion, teamwork, how to stand my ground, and when to leave something that no longer brings me joy. I learned how to forgive people who hurt me by being vulnerable about the pain I felt and how to be my own protector and best friend.
