Openness October. I'm just human. ?? Do you all already know this about yourselves and I'm just late to the game? ? If so, send me a ?. It was a helpful blow to my ego last year when I learned I couldn't muscle my way through every situation; some situations are just too hard. Sometimes what doesn't kill you DOESN’T make you stronger. Instead, it teaches you. It allows you to confront your humanity and often forces you to be vulnerable to the community of people around you, so they can hold your hand during the storm. It was a powerful lesson and beautiful gift to learn I’m just human ☺️.
