Stepping into who you know you can be, and shedding the layers of "who you think you should be" can be lonely. There will be people in your life, ones who love you and want the best for you, that may not understand why you would choose to change, or go after something they never would.
The more growth you desire, the more support you require. Stepping into your most authentic self is exciting, and also, at times, overwhelming.
Learn how to align yourself again and again with what you desire. Trust in your ability to answer what calls to you.
