Building Greater Self-Reliance: Day 04

31 Journaling Prompts for Building Greater Self-Reliance:  Day 04

“The objection to conforming to usages that have become dead to you is that it scatters your force. ”

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

What pieces of your old identity do you hold onto that are no longer serving you or you no longer believe in wholeheartedly? Are they worth letting go of?

this is actually a great prompt, and it’s something I have been considering a lot since my move to Minnesota.

I very much had a Character I [felt I] had to remain back home (discussed in this post). and then I did similarly here in generating expectations of this great Performance of a person.

I don’t want to be the Hot Mess of the group anymore. I don’t want to be the one that everyone knows is falling apart.

that’s not to say I won’t continue to admit my faults. I do want to continue using my experiences (both good and bad) and knowledge to help others. but I’m tired of fearing that people are rolling their eyes when I walk into a room because they know uncontrolled havoc is about to occur.

again, I’m all about some manageable havoc. because that’s legit who I naturally am.

I’m not trying to be someone else. I’m just trying to be someone who’s Better than she was yesterday.
