To be of maximum usefulness to others.
To help just one person possibly avoid the pitfalls that I encountered, or to help that one person know that it’s OK to have the experience that they are having. No one deserves to be stripped of the path they’re walking, regardless of the outcome. No one deserves to be escorted in a direction they aren’t supposed to take.
So maybe I’ll help you know it’s OK to fuck up a bit, and have some hope that you’ll still be upright on the other side. Maybe I’ll encourage you to take some risks, and to live your best life, and to just be where you are until you aren’t. Maybe I’ll give you permission to be a little more vulnerable, a little more open, and a little more transparent. A lot of people did (and do) that for me, and so I’d like to do it for you, too.
Either way, I just want to share what I’ve learned. I want to create some space, so that I can keep learning because really, I still don’t know what I don’t know. And maybe you do.
Here we go.
