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 way out.
Perhaps it was growing up in a family of seven children and moving ten different times before I was 18, 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 stay unnoticed 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 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 content or peaceful.
