This is great. It’s what we call ‘agency’, isn’t it? Having the confidence that we are competent and responsible to make change ourselves. It sounds like you know from experience how much effort is required to become your own agent of change. What a journey you’ve been on!
Thanks for sharing. I’m certainly learning a lot about my own agency — my own ability to take my life into my own hands and be the driver of my own decisions. It’s often hard work. But growing in this way has been one of the best things in my life.
