Perhaps it was growing up in a family of seven children and moving countless times, or perhaps it was just my nature, but I have long been an expert chameleon - going with the flow and accommodating those around me.
As a child, I preferred to remain in the background and was a constant worrier since I can remember. These skills served me well... until they didn't.
It was only once I hit a proverbial brick wall in my personal life that I was forced to begin a three-year journey to uncover a part of me that was suppressed and recognize that unless I learned to like the person within, I would never be able to fully thrive in a contented or peaceful way.
My tendency of acquiescing to others, seeking approval and swallowing my frustrations had made me physically ill, weary of life, mentally anxious and emotionally absent. Breathwork provided a pathway out and its that life hack I want to share.
