When I so desperately sought the approval of other people, it led me to live a life of chaos. I was literally like an infant being tossed around in a violent thunderstorm—or probably more like a hurricane. This way of living sent me down a path of destruction, thrown every which way in an attempt to “arrive” at Destination: “They Love Me” and trying to “be” whatever was required at that moment to be accepted. Holy moly, am I the only one? Giving the world an à la carte version of yourself will not lead to life. Instead, it will leave you with an unquenchable thirst for more, with your head on a perpetual swivel.
I invite you on this journey with me beyond the shallow and into the deep__beyond the topics that are easy or socially accepted and into the deeper realm that begs to remain silent yet longs to be set free. Truly free. Journal your way to a life worth living.
