How did those skills help you with your new role?"

Acceptance Had To Do With Simplicity

What Had Trapped Me Before

"The first rule I made for myself was to let go of thinking that whatever choice I made was a permanent thing. I would try different jobs, live in different areas, and date different people, all in the name of exploration. I would release my expectations of things “working out,” because that is what had trapped me before. Instead, I became more present in each situation and saw that each person and place helped me for the time being."
