It's been a busy spring. On the Spring Equinox I was fired from my job of three years because [they said] I gave up, wasn't passionate, was disrespectful, and difficult. That gave me time to pause and think about what path I wanted to explore next.
The moment I realized how much of myself I gave away, how often I compromised my values by staying quiet and complacent, witnessed how people could take credit for my merits, and how apologetic I became for even existing, I broke up with that version of me and reinvented myself.
When they thought they stripped me of something, I realized it was never mine to begin with and all I had to do was let them relieve me of the burden I didn't know was weighing me down. It wasn't until it was lifted, was I able to reclaim my self worth and take back my pride with a whole new perspective on who I want to be and what I want to accomplish as a human being.
