I was asleep for the first 18 years of my life. Trapped in the paradigm of society—family, school, sports and church—lost in the expectations. I was obedient and learned to color in the lines perfectly.

In reality, I was extremely angry, and I didn’t even know it. I directed this rage at myself. I caged myself in patterns of self-abuse and judgment. I thought if I just did what I was told, everyone would be satisfied… I looked outside for approval, always. And I was miserable.
