Self-Injury Workshop

Today I stood up in front of a lot of people and ran a Self-Injury Workshop…
It does not seem to matter how often I do these workshops, my heart was still pounding in my chest, my stomach crunching with every breath I took … Trying to appreciate my anxiety, I tell it thank you but I am good, I can do this … I don’t need to run anywhere. I am safe.
The little trembles within my hands, within my chest diminishes … I close my eyes and remember why I am here … how far I have come on my own journey …
We all have to face our fears however big or small … that’s where our growth is, that’s the place change happens . . . In those scary moments …. and today I leaped, I leaped knowing and trusting in myself ☺
As a Counsellor, I still need to take leaps in order to be my true authentic self. That is what we all have in common and can share together.
