I VENT LIKE A MANIAC

There’s a reason I hear that voice.

the similar voice you may hear, too!

Screw it.

I’m done. No longer give a damn.

The huge weight off my shoulders that’s immediately followed by a sinking feeling in my core is something I experience each and every time without fail.

I feel like throwing in the towel. I feel like giving up. I feel like, fuck it – let me just work a 9-5 like most normal people and call it a day.

But, something deep in me always tugs at me. And, it’s the same feeling I get when I’m at my wits’ end.

“NO. You can’t give up. You’ve come so far. Don't get down on yourself. You’ve got it in you. It’ll all come together soon, keep going. You just have to keep going.”

And so, once again, I listen to that inner voice. Whether it’s my inner child cheering me on, my higher self trying to keep me sane, or my intuition screaming at me, I listen.

No. It’s not always easy to listen. Sometimes I wanna tell that voice to shut the hell up. Then, I realize just how crazy I am for getting upset at a pretend voice that only I can hear.

But, there’s a reason I hear that voice. The similar voice you may hear, too.

Some women weren’t born to “just go with the flow.” Some women were created to venture against the wind, and to keep going even when all they have left in them is tears of frustration.

I like to think that I’m that type of woman. And, that YOU are, too.

You just know it in your gut and in your heart that if you don’t give it your all, you’d never forgive yourself. You know that giving up – as tempting as it may be more than often – isn’t truly what you want or can do.

So, what do you do? So, what do I do?

I get pissed off. I go off and vent like a maniac. I unplug from everything. I disconnect to reconnect.

I get the feeling – the poison– out of my system. Sometimes it just takes minutes, other times it may take days, if not weeks.

Then, when I’m ready again, I power through.

And it’s then, when I’m fully back, that I realize just how much I never truly wanted to give up.

Feel like giving up?

I know the feeling. I also know that something you daydream about every single day is worth chasing. If not in this lifetime, then when?

You’ve got this. For some reason or another, here I am writing this to you. And, I truly hope it reaches you.

Keep going.

REVEAL YOUR MISSION,

Vanessa
