I No Longer Sit at Tables Where I Might be The Topic When I Get Up

I no longer sit at tables where I might be the topic when I get up.


I used to think that in order to belong I had to sit at that kinda table. ⠀

I used to think that this is “just how women are.” ⠀

I used to think that I just didn’t belong, that I wasn’t enough.⠀

DUDE, let me drop another mic with a little Brene Brown talk…⠀

“Our worth cannot be determined nor negotiated by other people.”⠀

So if you’re sitting at the table where the topic of conversation is someone else’s shortcomings, mistakes, imperfections flaws, or lawd the he-said-she-said gossip…⠀

I assure you that when you leave your seat, you’re likely the next topic of conversation.

Hey all!  I am Katy Ursta married to my college sweetheart for 12 years, a mom of two boys, and a stage four cancer survivor. I started writing as a way of coping with my diagnosis, but found the more I shared about cancer, the more universal cancer became, and the more connected I felt to others and the less isolated I felt through the struggle.  I own a virtual health and wellness company and commit to helping my clients find a deeper motivation to fight for their own health. When I am not in the stands of my sons' hockey games, I am usually found folding the never ending piles of laundry, looking for the matching sock, breaking up hockey fights, or (let's just be honest) with my hand buried in the bag of chocolate, asking the question, "what do you want for dinner?"  You can find more of my work on Facebook, Instagram, or on my website.
