I used to be afraid of monsters underneath my bed and bad things that go bump in the night. But that fear has changed. It’s like the inner demons I’ve had grew up with me. Now, it’s thoughts like ‘will I ever be good enough for myself?’ or ‘what if I fail?’ that haunt me.
For the longest time, I was immobilized by fear. I allowed it to be at the forefront of every decision I made. And if I’m honest, my demons are still there. They’re not driving the car, but they’re in the passenger seat, whispering in my ear. Some days I can drown out their voices, other days it’s all I hear.
I think I am just trying my best day by day to be better than I was the day before. And I think that’s all any of us can really ask for. The most important thing is we try and try again. ♡
What are some of your inner demons?
Maybe if we share them, we won’t feel so alone.
And maybe, just maybe, we can find a way to overcome them - together. ☆ ...
