Whew…why is it so difficult being vulnerable? This was a bit of a challenging episode because I got emotional a couple times & I wasn’t sure why I got emotional.
I got promoted to purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) the day before I recorded this episode. It was very hard for me to accept & receive my purple belt.
A lot of my self-image issues & insecurities & identity issues came rushing back like a flood. I wasn’t prepared or expecting the promotion and I definitely wasn’t prepared for all the emotional ramifications of getting promoted either.
I’m still processing this event / experience.
Trying to give myself grace, patience & understanding.
