How does one begin to connect with oneself?
I’ve always told others that they will find great difficulty in finding who they are and connecting with themselves when they spend their days working on connecting with another. The quiet one gains in solitude beckons the soul to step forward. It is pushed back in the hectic drama of stressful relationships. Sometimes it’s necessary to let go of the relationships that are causing you more personal harm than good.
I’ve spent a number of years avoiding romantic relationships because it’s so easy to get caught up and forget myself! In those years, I recovered from heart break and began a journey of self-discovery and self-improvement. I’m a much different person than I was 5 years ago. It’s not often an 18-year-old girl will opt to avoid being romantically involved with others to focus on herself. But I’m young, I have no need to rush such things in life.
In my opinion, there’s nothing more important than discovering who you are and finding the happiness you deserve.
