I grew up hating my name.
Colby. To me, it just didn’t seem to fit. I was bullied for it: picked on, teased, laughed at, and branded too many things to list off. But the older I got, the more I realized that what other people labeled me as didn’t have to define me.
I didn’t have to fit the mold. Maybe, just maybe, I was born to break it. Redefine it. Transform it into something I never imagined I could be.
After years of struggle and hustling, I discovered my superpower and my purpose. I wasn’t Colby-the-kid-who-got-bullied or Colby-the-baller-who-seemed-to-have-it-all. I was something else entirely; I was just me, and that was enough.
I learned that discovering your purpose is like understanding that you have a superpower. It’s something that helps you come to terms with why you’ve always stood out, and why, as much as you might not want to, it’s actually a good that you don’t fit in.
This is my story; my journey towards discovering who I am. And maybe, you’ll learn something about yourself along the way.
