The Joy of Self-Knowledge
My relationship with my new husband feels like “Dessert” at the end of my life!
I asked myself, “Why does it feel so good?” And I realized:
I feel free to ENJOY BEING MYSELF around him!
And he enjoys being HIMSELF, around me.
But for years I didn’t feel free to be myself.
Fear and shame kept my feelings hidden.
Are you hiding the ‘real you’ around others? You are not alone.
Looking back, I realize I’d always had the keys to unlock that prison door, but it was when I opened my mouth to ask for help that I found the way through. Thank goodness I did ask for help – and I am no longer afraid, ashamed or hurting inside.
I created this map to show some of the routes I’ve travelled in my search for self knowledge.
