Hard stuff

Where do I begin. I’ve always been pretty independent. As a middle child, I always went with the flow but always tried to do my own thing and not get overlooked. Not sure that went so well. I always had a hard time with deep friendships for some reason. Middle school traumatized me a little which made me question my worth.
Some how my identity was connected to being an athlete and academics. And that continued through my career.
I still struggle with believing I’m worthy just by being me. I know it in my head, but sometimes my heart needs convincing.
