Delayed Blossoming

 Discuss this famous Anais Nin quote: “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

When you live your life based on the expectations of others,  you slowly suffocate. Emotional duct tape is applied. Your dreams, wants, fears are silenced.

The worst feeling is to look in the mirror and not recognize the face staring back at you. That’s the moment when you take your life back.

Duct tape has to go. Your voice needs to be heard. Your life needs to be lived the way you want to live it.
