Writing prompt 1: Write a Break-up Letter or a Termination Notice to a part of you that is holding you back and standing in the way of your Creative Revolution and which you no longer want to feed or encourage or allow to take over your life.
I’m writing to you today to let you know I’m done with your fear of never being enough. It’s time to stop trying to people please all the time. Not everyone will like you and that’s ok. The mere fact that you are on this planet means you are worth the energy to be alive. You have every right to want a good life, and to live your passions. You can work a boring day job and live your passions in your private life.
You are a good person. You truly want to help people for the sake of helping them, not because you might get something out of it. You are there to support others during difficult times and to celebrate their better times. That is something to be lauded. You help people see the good side of things more often than not. You have so much power to change lives. You need to stop letting fear get in the way of that.
You are stronger than you know. You have been through so much, even if it doesn’t seem like it. You now know what you want managers and leaders to be because of the things you have experienced. Maybe it’s time for you to be the leader you wish you had had.
It’s time to start reminding yourself how awesome you are.
