How do you know if you’re hanging around the wrong people?
Instead of making you feel seen, they make you question your value.
And the worst part is, it’s insidious. You wake up one day and realize the world has been dulling and muting your spirit, slowly beating the genius out of you, pushing you to lose a part of yourself that you may never get back.
It’s not a pretty picture.
But there is a secret to snapping out of this mental malaise. You have to reconnect to the unarguable parts of your identity. You have to physically flesh out the things that nobody can take away from you:
What you’ve learned, what you’ve created, what you’re capable of, how you’ve contributed to the group and most importantly, who you’ve become in the process.
Because even if those things aren’t part of their legacy, they’re still part of yours.
And soon enough, you’ll find a group of people who will have eyes to see you.
