Depending on our childhood, each of us as individuals will grow differently. As a child, I didn’t have a chance to emotionally grow because I was never encouraged to make decisions. Decisions were always being made for me.
Although I was able to hold down a job from the age of 18, I didn’t feel ready to ‘take on the world’. It was only when I moved on with my life at the age of 25 that things slowly began to change for me. It was like being thrown in at the deep end without being able to swim.
I had to teach myself how to think independently, how to be independent and how to make decisions. As I slowly began to learn about myself, I began to grow and as a result was able to change certain aspects of my life. I found a voice in me that I never knew I had, and for the first time I started to look at my life differently. My focus and priorities began to change.
It is important we learn perspective and allow ourselves space to emotionally grow. I believe in putting space between us and others when we have to. Having our own space is massively important, because it allows us time to renew ourselves with a more positive outlook.
