There was a time not so long ago when I thought I had it all figured out. I had my ride-or-die people and I thought everything was grand. But – and this will happen to everyone at least once in their lives – I realized that I had placed my trust and my confidence into the wrong people. And moreso than that, I was suffering for it in more ways than I care to put into writing here.
I’m not going to lie and tell you that there weren’t times I wanted to hop onto my alt and say forget it, but I decided to approach things a bit differently. I decided to approach myself a bit differently, and I made some amazing new friends, and I found some new confidence, and I began to let those walls down and remember who I was and remember why I came here in the first place.
Some of us are constantly on the go. We’re running, running, running, but for other people. And most of the time, this means that we’re standing still. We’re pushing too hard. We’re losing sight of the simplest things because we’re too busy trying to turn our heads in nine different directions at once. I’m glad that I have someone in my life – a few people, really – who I can turn to now, truly – who will support me when I feel like the walls are closing in. It took me a long time to get there. A long time to figure it out. But I did.
And I’m sure we all have that person in our lives. If you don’t, you’ll find them. I’ll be that person, even. See, I know what it’s like not to have that, and now that I do, I feel a hundred times better. Now, instead of running away, I run to the person I know will understand, and I feel better. Instead of constantly trying to go nine different directions for other people, I’m looking forward and moving toward my own happiness.
That’s what we all need to do. Not run away, necessarily, but run in the right direction, and for the right reasons.
Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.
