I don’t know about you, but when I live in a way that falls short of the person I want to be, it hurts. A lot. I feel small, I feel faulty, broken, worthless. I feel like I’ve failed like I have hurt or let other people down. I feel undeserving of love.

As a professional dancer, I went through a lot of my training obsessed with those around me were thinking of me, hanging off of every word that my teachers said to make or break my spirits. It was a brutal and debilitating pattern to be stuck in.
