I’ve wanted to quit many times in my journey. I can’t count the number of times I’ve wanted to throw in the towel and accept defeat with my stutter. It was heartbreaking. I was making it mean so much, constantly overthinking 24/7. It was driving me mad.
I’ve learnt so much over the years BECAUSE of my drive to figure out why I stutter, and what things I can try to overcome it. Nothing really worked in terms of the speech, but the amount I’ve grown personally is INSANE.
Things I’ve gained from my quest to overcome stuttering:
– Found the present moment (literally the only thing that matters)
– Discovered meditation
– Have more self-awareness
– Found my purpose
– Learnt to let go of negative emotions and thoughts
– Learnt to reframe the past
– Learnt how to stop caring about other people’s opinions
– Discovered spirituality
I probably wouldn’t have done ANY of that had I just given up at the beginning, after the first thing didn’t work.
Never ever stop believing in yourself, believing in the journey, and believing in growth. Just keep going. You’re smashing it.
Never stop believing <3
