You are worthy
"Please do not twist yourself into shapes to please. Don’t do it. If someone likes that version of you, that version of you that is false and holds back, then they actually just like that twisted shape, and not you. And the world is such a gloriously multifaceted, diverse place that there are people in the world who will like you, the real you, as you are." ~Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie
How do we know and be ourselves consciously? So much of what we learn about being in the world isn’t really ours. We just picked it up along the way unconsciously. How do we sort through all that’s in there to say yes yes that is me, I’m keeping it and that there, no! I’m letting go of that! We get to choose what fits us now.
My “Inner Worlds” portraits are an invitation to be fully present with ourselves in self-reflection and awareness with curiosity and openness to seeing and knowing. By connecting to the full range of life within, we can acknowledge what we find inside and make choices about what to keep and what to release in the process of our healing, growth and evolution.
