“I have always struggled with choosing myself” – Wilson Texas
Today’s message comes not from me, but from a friend.
Wilson lives in Nigeria and we met recently on a course together. When he was reflecting on the below writing piece, he discussed how he’d never been so open and vulnerable before.
His piece is titled “You can’t truly see others if you can’t see yourself” and I hope you enjoy it.
Of the many things I drew from this piece of writing, I was particularly taken by the line “I have always struggled with choosing myself”.
It begs the question. How many of us are given permission when we are growing up to be, or perhaps realise, ourselves?
