For me, this can be really hard to remember and actually do. Having all of these adoption emotions can make me feel extremely self conscious and that translates into me not necessarily “owning who I am.” But, it is incredibly helpful and important thing to learn how to do. Those days when you really feel confident in who you are and your story are usually the best. It’s difficult, but worth learning how to do. I really believe it’s a lifelong journey to figure that out, and I for sure am nowhere near learning it completely, but I’m certainly trying. Sure, some days are better than others and there are some really hard days, but it’s important to keep owning you. Love who you are and how you became who you are.
