I would retreat whenever someone would ask me my opinion.
I was lacking self-confidence, scared of failure, worried that I was not informed…
Low self-esteem blocked off my creativity, and during my twenties, it kept me completely boxed into corporate role silos.
I never liked being that way, but at the time, it felt like there was no way out.
I remember this one moment, where I said, “There’s got to be a way out of this.”
Not long after that, I ran into a book by Desmon Tutu called: “No Future Without Forgiveness”.
In the book he talks about reconciliation and while reflecting- something sparked inside of me… and this book changed my life.
At that moment, I realized that I could change. The past was not the future. I didn’t have to stay the person I was.
