My whole life I played it safe, kept my head down, and kept quiet.
.
When my therapist asked me last year what my worst injury was as a gymnast, I laughed and said “I broke my big toe and had to get pins put in it. I was always scared of getting hurt so I was always cautious.”
.
I’m also not one to voice my opinion. I often go with the flow or let someone else choose where we are going or what we are doing. I sit back and listen to conversations instead of trying to talk over others.
.
Can you relate to me yet? 😂 If you can, I want you to know that there is nothing wrong with you. You might wish you could be more outspoken or not afraid of confrontation, but hey, it’s gotten you this far in life. We all have flaws. Sometimes our flaws become our strengths.
.
For me, it helped me work my butt off in getting a full-ride gymnastics scholarship to college. It has helped me be an amazing mom.
.
There is nothing wrong with you. The only difference between me and you is I just decided I wanted to inspire others who were like me and share about it on social media, putting more positivity in this space instead of negativity (that is easy to come by nowadays unfortunately).
.
Keep being you, boo 🙌🏻
