The Battle Within Me...
Over the years, I had such low self esteem, low self worth that I thought I was not good at anything, had nothing to be proud of. For years, I was in that battle with myself and desperately tried to come to grips with it. And so I went on a voyage of self discovery. I needed to define my identity; who am I? Who do I want to be or should be? It was not easy. I needed to find that self that is the vehicle for navigating my social world.
Alas, on my voyage, I came to embrace my otherness, embrace myself by battling with my low self-esteem. How? I realised that I needed to give rise to my other self, the self that has identified with qualities that brings out the real me, the best in me. In trying to become what people wanted me to become I gave that self so much authority that it shattered my self esteem and in so doing I failed to realise my potential.
One quiet afternoon at work, my boss summoned me to inform me that he has forwarded a mail to my mailbox. I went back to my computer and opened to find a link which redirected me to World Pulse (PulseWire). As I read through, I found to my surprise and utter delight that I have found an avenue through which I could connect and interact with women with like minds and express myself. I can use this as a platform to reach out to and share with women with issues such as mine so we can find solutions thereby empowering and developing ourselves.
