You see yourself as a place where you go to work. And you should see yourself as a place where you can also go to rest.
But you don’t, do you?
A voice inside you torments you: “Tick tock, time is ticking, and you have already wasted too much.”
But at the same time, there is something in your chest -like an intuition- that reveals itself and wants to make that voice understand that part of the process, when one works on oneself, is to enjoy oneself, to delight oneself, to start feeling comfortable inside a wild skin that for eons it took you to conquer.
You have to learn to see yourself as a place where you don’t always have to go and make an effort, as a place where you can also take refuge, be you, and not be accountable to anyone.
A place where you can exist without having to suck in your gut or smile all the time or be liked or say something clever or measure your words so you don’t say something inappropriate or compete or draw attention to yourself.
A special place where you feel good. Because at the end of the day, wherever you go, you can only be in one place “inside yourself.”
