sometimes feeling a bit empty

A cardboard box,

Slightly battered

But empty

No purpose

No labels

To give others a clue.

When I went to therapy I really struggled to understand who I was, and I realised that I didn’t have a personality or a soul or a centre, whatever you want to call it – I felt like an empty box.

I’ve come to know myself better pver the past six years, but every so often I get that feeling return, and I’m the empty cardboard box that I once was. It’s always at moments of stress and anxiety, when someone is being nasty to me or super critical. It’s like my self just crumbles away and it’s a scary feeling.

Unfortunately, in teaching there is often somebody being mean to you and I feel like I’m battling these insecurities every day. I’m getting stronger though, as I fill my soul with stuff that makes me solid.

Make sure you’re filling yourself up with good stuff too.

Much Love

    Those times can be really tough, Rachel. I’m glad you’ve made the choice to fill yourself with positive things and self-care when you need it. That makes so much difference!
