Today I had a blissfully chilled out meal with some online friends. No big fuss; a simple and delicious meal with a lot of chatting.
I feel so happy to be at a point in my life where I’m feeling comfortable enough in my own skin to say yes to the opportunity.
There are so many times when I have said no; held prisoner by my own fear.
Fear of not belonging, of being rejected, of repeating patterns. Yet what keeps us in those patterns is our fear. Reticence holds us back from connection and ultimately poisons our chance of happiness.
No more. Half a life is a high price to pay. It takes some courage to change your outlook but saying yes is a good place to start.
Yes: let’s meet, hang out, do lunch. Let’s reach out and make friends.
