Those two extremes equal me. Who I was, who I have become.
There’s the one extreme that has shined through and the one people now seem to recognise in me. Creativeness, ambition and boldness. The loud one that wants to be seen, that wants to live for her passion and be creative. The one that made me fight.
This side of me has made me do and experience things I never in a million years thought I would. It has made me get out of my darkest time, and keeps on pushing me everyday.
There’s the other one that took up my entire life as a kid. Selective Mutism. Anxiety. Fear. I never left the memories and feelings behind me, I decided to take it with me and carry it to show others what is possible. To inspire and help. Support and spread awareness. I took charge of it and decided I would keep my fight with me to show you, to remind myself of what I have achieved.
It also made me different. Different forever. In a good way. More emotional, but also better at explaining my feelings. More understanding. Stronger. A fighter.
Even if I didn’t want to speak up about it – I know I would forever have parts of it with me. In everything I am and will become.
So this is what I want it to be about. To share with you guys. The two sides. The two extremes. Me.
I hope you want to keep reading, interacting and following. There will be new updates here every Wednesday and Sunday, so stay tuned.
