It All Starts With Self-Awareness
The relationships in my life have been a source of inspiration and have also led to personal transformative moments full of positive changes. However, it all began with self-awareness and acknowledging that before changes could take place, I had to awaken to the idea that things were not perfect, including myself. Many people ask: “what is self-awareness?” I describe this notion as a state-of-mind that’s constantly seeking truth. I knew I had encountered this mindset when the same questions kept reappearing in different scenarios. After the end of my last relationship, I became curious about the demise of that dynamic. Understanding how all the pieces fit together helped me heal because the truth was the only thing I felt could set me free from the heartache I was experiencing.

Self-awareness can lead to beautiful discoveries and life altering moments, but it comes with a price. I had to be willing to address the wounds I was previously suppressing due to years of ignorance. My ignorance came from a place of pain as well. Because sadness and fear were too overwhelming for me to deal with, I learned to autocorrect these emotions by hiding anything that could enhance my anxiety. Of course, I had no idea I was doing this. According to me, I was “living my life” and simply had an overreactive way of being that was never going to go away. As I became self-aware of my trigger points, I began to correlate these reactions with circumstances that brought out the same negative emotions, time and time again. This “way of being” became a pattern in all of my relationships, until I could no longer suppress the issues that were going on beneath the surface. My survival depended on my self-awareness because I was certain that if I continued to live the way I had been, I’d end up being my own biggest heartbreaker.

The book I’m writing about the lessons my exes left behind will include many revelations that became the catalyst for my personal transformation. Over the next 6 weeks, I’ll be discussing a different lesson during each Words of Wisdom Wednesday podcast episode. This book has been a labor of love because every time I write, I’m forced to look at the woman I was, which can be a painful task at times. If you’d like to be notified of the book launch, use this form and we’ll send you an email when the book is available for purchase.

As I mentioned in the intro of this episode, THANK YOU for supporting WOWW Campaign and allowing us to now be heard in 57 different countries. I couldn’t do this without a supportive audience that believes in vulnerability and constantly striving for more personal development. Thank you so much for allowing my vision to become a reality!
