Do you often find your leave is over and you didn’t enjoy it? Instead, you spent time on things you didn’t want to do. How do you enjoy your holiday time? I just faced this problem during my last leave; I felt stressed and didn’t enjoy this leave as much as I have had previous leaves and holidays.
I wish I had the courage to do “that”. I wish I had the courage to be myself. Why is it that I’m afraid to be authentic? What am I afraid of?
