Apart of the reason why I started this blog was due to the fact that I have been through QUITE the journey in the past year and a half.
Some, I’ve shared with my loved ones. Most, I’ve kept to myself.
I’ve watched myself mentally grow through some of the worst situations that a person could go through when it comes to shitty relationships. Mind you, I was young, naive and still learning about myself when I met these people who have been in and out of my life. Without these experiences, I wouldn’t have half the young woman that I am today, and what’s amazing about it is that I’m still growing as a person. Everything was a learning experience and for that, I am thankful.
However, in the moment, there were times where I felt like I couldn’t pick myself up from being broken. The strength and self-love that I have today, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I know how far my self-worth measures, and now I’m able to let go of the things that are not meant for me.
I honestly want to be able to share my experiences, and express them through my writing in hopes that someone out there who feels as though, they can’t make it through whatever battle they’re going through because, I know that they can. If there’s something that I could do differently, it would be not pushing away the people in my life that genuinely loved and cared about me because, their support meant everything to me. I would drop everything to help someone when they need me, all they have to do is call. I wish I could’ve remembered that I have people in my life who would do the same in a heartbeat. It’s so important to remember that the people in your life who love you unconditionally won’t hurt you, or want to see you hurting. It’s easy to get caught up and forget about the ones around you when that one person is draining all of the love out of you but, that’s the person you need to push away, not the ones who love you.
My loves, if no one has told you how amazing, precious and important you are today, let me be the one to yell it through this computer screen. YOU. MATTER. Don’t let anyone make you feel otherwise.
This is a place for love, happiness and positivity. You’re more than welcome to join me.
