What's up SoAwk Gang! Let's talk about the solitude journey when choosing ourselves. It can initially be a lonely journey, but it's also one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself 🙇🏽♂️...(and trust me you'll eventually attract your tribe!)
Choosing yourself means putting your needs first and setting boundaries! And if you're anything like me, you're in your head like "Yuck, what's that and why?!". In layman's terms, boundaries are the limits and rules we set for ourselves within relationships. You communicate your needs for healthy interactions with others. Trust - It's not always easy!. Not everyone may like or understand your boundaries. Sometimes it means going against the norm. It can be hard to break free from the expectations that society puts on us, but it's so important to remember that we are all unique individuals with our own paths to follow.
It's okay to take time for yourself and do what makes you happy, even if others don't understand it. Remember, you are the only one living your life, so make sure you are living it for yourself.
And while it can be lonely at times, know that you are never truly alone. There are others out there who are on the same journey as you, and together, we can support and uplift each other.
So keep being true to yourself, gang. Keep choosing yourself and doing what makes you happy. The journey may be tough, but it's worth it in the end. You got this! 🏾💕
