Ep 98: Don't Let Anyone Write Your Story
It isn't easy to wear our hearts on our sleeves or to confidently march to the beat of our own drums. Regardless of what you do, there will always be someone who doesn't agree with what you're doing or who doesn't want to see you succeed. And when you're feeling strong and confident, the naysayers seem insignificant. But the second you doubt yourself, their voices can drown yours out.
There’s a part in Brene Brown’s latest book Braving the Wilderness that really struck a chord with me. She writes, “Don’t walk through the world looking for evidence that you don’t belong because you will always find it. Don’t walk through the world looking for evidence that you’re not enough because you will always find it. Our worth and our belonging are not negotiated with other people. We carry those inside of our hearts.”
Today I want to talk about why it's important that we value our voices and write our own stories.
