On the outside things looked great: college grad, amazing family, a career I was passionate about. But on the inside, I was trapped in comparison, people pleasing, and a wavering self-worth based on my physical appearance, résumé accomplishments, and attention from guys. I was aching to be noticed and wanting to be liked, because that’s where I found my value. I was exhausted trying to “keep face” and make MY dreams and plans happen.
