authenticity activism.

The thing about putting yourself out there, being truly vulnerable, is that it's scary and wonderful and challenging and oh-my-god-I-think-I-can't-do-this-what-will-people-think?

Not everyone wants you to go for it.  Not everyone wants to see you soar.  You can't let that stop you.

So I remind myself that I am enough.  I am worthy.  I am a good person.  I am most certainly imperfect.

I choose compassion when the going gets tough.  I choose to be kind when words are used as weapons.  I choose to live and love with my whole heart.

  3. I have something similar posted as my mantra, that I am enough. I've battled depression for the past 10 or more years and I have my good days and my bad. I constantly have to remind myself that even my worst decisions came from a person who is worthy, who deserves the best from myself. I think we're walking on the same path. Thanks for putting yourself out there, Kat.
