In the past few weeks, I have opened up to more people. And it has felt awesome in many ways. Knowing that my family loves me even if I don't go to church, or have doubts or questions, or... That has felt amazing.
Downside has been opening myself up to everyone's advice and thoughts on my life.
"You can't be happy..."
"You need to..."
"Why don't you..."
Actually. I KNOW HOW TO TAKE CARE OF ME.
I AM happy. And I have sad days. I don't need to do anything except what I need to do. AND I KNOW WHAT TO DO.
I want to speak out more, and I don't have to do it today.
I do need people in my life, and I choose who those people are and when I interact with them.
Jen, you know what you need. Take care of you. Trust you.
And now I'm going riding, because I do know what I need and what is best for me.
