Inadequacy. The feeling that you are not enough, or not doing enough. The more it festers, the more your thoughts become shrouded in negativity, and your heart ends up on shaky ground. Even in the midst of all the good happening in your life, you can’t seem to look past that one small, insignificant thing that throws your universe out of whack.
After years of grappling with this feeling of “inadequacy”, it’s time for a reality check, effectively immediately. No more waking up to a chorus of “you can’t do this”, or falling asleep to whispers of “you are not this”. The stars in your universe may not always be aligned, but they form a shape nonetheless; a distinct constellation comprised of your successes and failures, flaws and all. Because without lightness AND darkness keeping you going, how else can you demonstrate the strength to own your galaxy?
A special thank you to Clique Brands and WWW Collection for gifting me with the jumpsuit.
