Welcome to Aspiring Journey! I just want to say thank you for taking the time to check out Aspiring Journey. I’m so grateful that you came across my website. As a believer that every interaction happens for a reason. I am sure you did not come across aspiring journey by accident.
Who Is Aspiring Journey
So, first off I just want you as a reader to get to know me. My name is Keyshia Imani and I want you to understand my intentions with creating Aspiring Journey. The majority of my life I honestly felt like a failure. Believe it or not, being a natural perfectionist is not always the best trait to have. I always felt like I couldn’t finish anything. That I was never good enough compared to other people’s accomplishments. I never felt like my accomplishments amounted to other people’s.
Even though I was never jealous of other’s accomplishments I never felt secure within myself to see that I was more than enough. I learned if anyone had a problem with who I was then that means they are not for me. It took a while to realize that sometimes that’s okay. As an early adolescent and teenager, I didn’t understand that and in my early stages of adulthood, it was still a difficult concept for me to fully grasp. People pleasing was one of my biggest downfalls when it came to establishing boundaries, but the beauty of it was that I always excelled in my customer service jobs.
I am a dreamer or what I would call an idealist. I do not think there is anything wrong with being an idealist. I’m always looking for the good in others and in situations. I’m always searching for ways to make things better. The only issue was that through all that I was never able to look for the good in myself. The relationship that I had with myself was toxic.
Growing up I did not have anyone to guide me away from this relationship that I was building with myself. Because of the toxic relationship, I had with myself I began building toxic dynamics with other people.
Why I Decided to Create Aspiring Journey
It took a long time before I was able to get a better understanding of myself. I’m in a better place now where I know the difference between who I am and who I am not.
Before that, because I did not know myself, I was not treating myself the way anyone with decent self-respect and a good level of self-esteem should. I was engaging in relationships that were not the best fit for me. I was trying to seek happiness in places that you really can’t find happiness at.
Through it all, the toughest part is that I genuinely felt like I had no one to talk to and I do not want the next person to feel that way. To feel as though they are walking through life alone.
With anything, I noticed that the biggest thing many people want is for their voice to be heard, for their feelings to be validated and, to ultimately be understood.
If you do feel that way that stops today. As my readers, I want you to feel like you are being heard. There are people out there, like myself who care and want to help facilitate what you can do. If I’m not able to provide the necessary value, you need into your life I at least want to lead and point you in the right direction.
I am extremely passionate about my mission for aspiring journey. My goal is to be able to connect with you. I want to hear your stories along with any questions that you may have for me. I am most accessible by email which is [email protected] but of course, you can still reach out to me on Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube.
