Instagram post by @thewritersink NAT BOX | THE WRITER'S INK

Been a lonnnng time coming. 🎶🎤🦋 After being in a place that silenced my creativity for so many years, fear layered itself over my unique voice and I forgot who I was. The past 18 months I’ve been processing some deep trauma, which has led to intense anxiety and depression. As I’ve been brave and dug deep and faced pain and talked things through with my psychologist, its opened my eyes to so many things. We actually have the power and ability to choose what we believe, to be bold and have our own opinions, to have a voice, to think for ourselves and to flourish in our unique passions. 🍃 If you’re in a place where fear is folding you back, don’t just say “fear is a liar” and try push through and ignore it, it’s there for a reason. Our bodies are so amazing and so kind and when we feel fear they are actually trying to tell us something is wrong. Like a little kid, they’re saying “hey we’re afraid”. It’s our body’s automatic trigger response telling us we’re in danger. So what we need to do is actually listen to ourselves with tenderness 🌿 to bravely dig in, get dirty, and perhaps talk to a professional to find out what’s happened to make us fearful and what’s going on in our internal world. Cos when we do this, the mask falls off and we get to know ourselves so beautifully, then in turn what happens is suddenly we realize that we don’t actually care so much about what people think, and we begin doing things not to seek approval or so people will like us or reward us, but because we actually love it. 🦋 Like free little kids we’ll just want to fly. Or sing. :) Thank you for reading this, I’m cheering you on with all my heart. By no means is this deep journey of healing over, I’m still on it, but I am now seeing myself and the world with more clarity and beauty, not doing things to please people, being kinder with myself instead of ripping myself apart with a critical voice, and just realizing that my unique voice is beautiful and strong, and that I have something powerful to say🌻🌱
Happy Saturday, friends :) Nat xo #youaremorepowerfulthanyourealise #rememberwhoyouare Thanks for coming down girls @nicolemonteduro @louisevaccaro
