What Happened To You?

By: John Patrick Adams

Have you ever looked into the mirror and asked the person starring back, “What happened to you?”. Not that you look any different, but you feel different. You just don’t quite feel like the person you used to be and you don’t know when, where or how you lost that person. You know the person who was fearless; driven; passionate and didn’t give two shits about what others thought. The person who could commit to a better lifestyle mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. The person who saw something in the glass opposed to seeing it half empty or full. The person who always found the “brighter side” of things.

That person is still there, yet you’re unable to hear him/her because of the chaos within. Chaos driven by fear; self-doubt, generational curses; anger and hate towards others. Chaos which was created because you made the decision to make others opinions your truth. Chaos from surrounding yourself with people who are depleting you of energy, truth and positive thoughts and feelings. Chaos which is giving birth to you comparing yourself to others and always coming up short. The person you used to be is still there and hopefully have evolved into greater, yet you’re allowing “life” to suffocate him/her.

What I know for sure is… The person you used to be which is strong, fearless and limitless is still there. He/she wants to come out and live, but you have to uncover him/her by letting go of things in which aren’t true… You know things like “You’re not good enough”; “You’re too fat”; “You’re not pretty or smart enough”. Things you’ve allowed others to manipulate and control you. The only thing that has happened to the person you used to be is they are no longer calling the shots, FEAR IS…..
