I haven’t written in this space for a while because I’ve been scared.
There I said it.
While, in some ways, I’ve overcome my people pleasing habits. I still care about how my actions might be perceived. I care about how I make you feel.
I am a textbook Enneagram type 2.
I love that I care about people but I realized that if I care too much, I can cripple myself.
I never set out to be ‘on the edge’ or controversial.
I set out to be me, unapologetically.
My pride almost stopped me from writing this post.
Would people think I was weak? Would they question my motives? Would they think I was being attention seeking?
To be honest with you, fear has stopped me from doing most things I’ve wanted to do in life.
And frankly, I’m over it.
I spend most of my days telling myself and those around me to ‘do it afraid.’
And in some ways, I do.
I’m a problem solver and a leader. I can handle most stress with grace and ease.
But there are a few things that make me stop in my tracks.
Those few things make me a hypocrite.
So here is my attempt at ‘doing it afraid.’
Welcome to #FearlessFridays.
A new post. Every Friday. From yours truly.
Let’s get it.
