These interactions this week were frustrating because being tested, yet alone threatened and called names is not easy to deal with. I’m proud of my responses to the confrontations because people I care about witnessed my reaction and saw how I choose to be in the world.

Take one small step forward and trust yourself that you are working in the interest of becoming your best self. Be done with repeating the mistakes of your past.
