Pride is an exciting time. It highlights the enormous journey the LGBTQIA community has taken, and how far the rest of the world still has to go.
Taking Pride in yourself is something that is tough for many to do. Let alone when you are faced with relentless boundaries and challenges.
This is why self-exploration is about what you are proud of and what you want for yourself.
Pride should not only give a feeling of satisfaction, but also motivate and inspire you for what you want next.
Pride comes from your belief in yourself and an understanding of what you want.
It is feeling pride, which has gotten the LGBTQ community to speak out regardless of what others say or think. That takes bravery, perseverance and ambition to do what you believe it right and the best thing for yourself and for your community.
We can learn so much from what is being marched for this month and sets an example of what can be achieved.
Having pride is a powerful resource to have but it comes from working on yourself and believing in what you can achieve.
If you want to feel this in yourself, you can start by answering some simple questions:
- Answer for yourself, what do you see for yourself?
- What is standing in your way?
- What do you need to do to tackle those obstacles
- Action it today.
Each step is a challenge on its own, but even just wanting to feel pride in yourself is a great first step
This month is the ideal time to look to everyone marching for their community and to find in yourself the same will and perseverance to succeed.
Happy Pride Month.
