This is so very special. You are SO welcome! Such a wonderful feeling to see the discoveries and new experiences that are available to us everyday if we are open to them.
As far as the labels that I or others have given me... I was always the "smart one" when I was growing up. I was always the one that wouldn't accept less than perfection, and I liked it. I think I loved it because I thought that my grades and intelligence were the one thing that I could control. As I've grown older and shed this label, I've often been self-labeled and labelled by others as the "spiritual one" the "nutty one" or the "sad one". I'm challenging these labels every day. I'm challenging them by taking risks that I wouldn't otherwise, but I have so much more to do. Identifying these labels, and knowing that they are just labels is an important first step, but knowing what to do next is often such a challenge for me, because slipping back into hopelessness can be so easy. Reminding myself everyday that I have the resources, the love, and the support available has been massively helpful!
