In the last couple months I've been experiencing a peaceful calm within myself, one I've never really felt before. I've had calm moments and felt good in the past, but this is coming from the depths of my being, feels much more grounded.
To get here, I've recently worked really hard at being aware of my own self suffering. When I notice it, I chose to look at it with honesty and decided if I wanted to continue doing this to myself. Awareness can then provide choice.
There have been years in the past where I was not at a place where I could be aware or choose, and that was ok. That's where I was in my growth and process. Each one of us are on our own path, whether we experience denial, depression, anxiety, hopelessness, addiction, obsessions, harming, fixing, ignoring, etc.
We each learn about ourselves through our experiences and the relationships we have. Each person along my path has been a mirror in some way showing me parts of myself I needed to see, or experience parts of myself to face, heal and let go of.
I've learned this past year, the more time we put into understanding ourselves, versus someone else, the more clear things become. I have spent many years trying to change things outside of myself or help manage aspects or problems of others. This didn't bring me internal peace or self esteem that allowed me to be me. With the commitment to my well being, life and truth over the last ten years I've come to a place where living in my skin feels amazing, peaceful and real.
I've been an empath all my life and navigating myself around the feelings and experiences of others has been challenging. It's do-able though, I can share confidently today, if this hits home to anyone reading.
Over the last ten years these are the actions that have assisted me in reaching the feeling of peacefully living in my own skin today.

No matter what calls out to you, I've trusted my self through each hardship and each challenge, even when I didn't see a way through. Life has an amazing way of leading you to the people you need even when it doesn't feel like it. We can find outlets that work for us individually to discover and uncover all kinds of aspects of ourselves. This commitment to yourself can bring inner peace and a life you love living in your own skin.
Walk forward courageously, honestly, truthfully and don't be afraid to feel a little. It's in our array of feelings that we move through things powerfully, transform and share with the world our truest self we were meant to be.
To our greatness!!!!!!
