My Line in the Sand

My line in the sand reappears often. I shudder when thinking of going into a new situation: Will I be accepted for who I am and will me, being me, jive with the group? This imaginative barrier is one that takes some self-motivating to get past.

We all have these moments of self-doubt and I believe they stem from that need of feeling included. Common bonds strengthen us and help us express ourselves especially when we are accepted for who we are.

One tactic I use is to mention it to others and they hold me accountable to go, knowing that I will enjoy it and take away something new from the experience.

After the event, I am glad I participated and feel good about myself crossing that line in the sand.
