Thank you for this soothing camaraderie. Coming from an abusive childhood, I have developed a deep disdain for narcissistic behavior. So much, that at times, I have to fight hard against the association of guilt when receiving a gift. Last year, I quit my Corporate job to restart my Freelance IT Firm, tekAura, and went back to school for a Master of Arts in Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Full Sail University. These choices have forced me to face this amongst other fears and anxieties.
The biggest single lesson I have had to learn in this life is how to allow myself to love myself. It's antagonist is the fear that I will have reached the climax of my life once I have mastered it.
