This couldn't be more true 👌
I never do anything by halves, its either all or nothing with me. I used to hate that about myself, that I couldn't do anything unless I was 100% in or 100% out! Its a rule that applies to every aspect of my personality and life.....and my illnesses.
I just don't do middle ground and I have no idea why but as I approach yet another 32nd birthday (Ive had alot) , I realise that I'm actually really ok with that. I like who I am (for those who really know me, know that that is not something I say with ease) and I like the place I'm at right now. Nothing has changed within my personality and the way I do things; I still over love, over protect, over think and I most definitely over share, the only difference is now, is with whom I invest my time in and being kinder to myself.
No longer do I over love people who don't give me a second thought, no longer do I protect those who would push me under a bus and no longer do I think about those who only want to cause me harm.
I do however, give myself permission to have 0% days. I allow myself to have down days and not to be self critical when I dont feelable to take on the day's tasks. I no longer carry guilt, when I eject people from my life, who do not enrich my world in any way, shape or form and I no longer chastise myself, for occasionally putting myself first ❤
