When the Walls Came Down
I didn’t realize this until recently, but CLW completely demolished the walls I had in place. Walls I didn’t even know existed.
I’m 29 years old now. When I was in elementary I was a very active, outgoing lil kid who was really into music. I was taking piano lessons…in the school choir and church choir, taking saxophone lessons and performing at church and school plays.
I was also getting fat during that time. I look back and I believe it was due to a feeling of loneliness and isolation which led me to consuming sugar and flour products to avoid that feeling, which then led me to gaining weight pretty fast. There were about 4 people who really made it bad for me during elementary school with excessive teasing…so it was at that point I shut down. I tried to hide the real me so I didn’t have to deal with the persistent teasing and stuck feeling I felt because I couldn’t make it stop. During that time I made a decision to put up walls to block people out…and those walls followed me all the way to adulthood.
No more walls
I feel that…life is about to get waaaaay more fun…because people make it fun. There’s only so much fun you can have alone. My walls are down. I’m a part of three coaching programs, a mastermind group and a beautiful 12-step fellowship. I invite people in now. People of all shapes, sizes, ages, genders are all welcome.
