Live Your Legend Blog Challenge #1 – Tell Your Story

Hello friends,

I’ve found myself another blog challenge to follow! This one is from Live Your Legend.

When I began this blog back in 2013 (whuut), I simply wanted to share my experience as a person living with EEC. I hoped that by sharing my story, I could help others affected by this condition. Talking about what I’ve gone through is a way of saying “I know how you feel – this happened to me too”, or “Guys, it’s going to be okay, eventually!”

After a while, I exhausted my EEC stories. Or at least I told all I wanted to tell for the time being. So I moved on to talking about other things in life; of traveling and artistic pursuits and my work with Toastmasters. All the while, I really wanted to talk about my experience growing up in an obscure religion and how I got myself out of that.

Finally, in these past few months, I shared my losing my religion stories. Again, I share these stories in the hopes that someone out there who needs them will read them. I’m not the only person in the world who was in a religion I didn’t like! I want you, dear reader, to know that if you feel sick to your stomach every Sunday morning, you CAN choose to walk away from it, and it will be okay (eventually).

Perhaps the next topic I will really delve into is the constant struggle of worthiness. Of insecurity. I’m struggling with it right now, as I begin yet another blog challenge to try and make my blog into a masterpiece. I can feel the wiggliness in my tummy as I write, thinking about who might read this and judge me negatively.

No matter how many times people tell you your writing is good, or your artwork is good, or YOU yourself are good, there always seems to be that voice inside that pulls you back and says, they’re just being polite, and you’re really not that good. 

Well, on that note… I’ll be back tomorrow for day #2 of the challenge!
