I have become ok enough with myself to know that I deserve happiness. This has become a huge step for me over the last months. I know now that I am not somehow a sub-par human and that I am not below other people. It’s a liberating feeling when you realize that there is no such thing as “out of my league”. I am motivated to push forward and I am allowing myself to feel happiness. I’m taking risks and I’m not going to lay down and die. I’m going to do things I want to do and that realization has lifted a huge weight off of my shoulders. My point today is that we all deserve happiness and none of us are below anyone else.
