Dear Girl at rock bottom:
I spent my whole life trying to change myself...
In high school I would have "transformation summers" where I spent the whole vacation dedicated to trying to transform my look and my confidence. I would try every diet I could find to get the results I wanted hoping I could feel beautiful...
In college I was so unhappy with my life that while everyone else was studying for finals, I was in a psych ward recovering from a suicide attempt.
I had such low self worth that at one point I found myself in a relationship with a drug addict and homeless.
With that track record, I am pretty sure no one would have bet on me ending up here.
Where am I now? Happy, confident, fully in love with my life, in a healthy happy relationship and strong and proud of the person I am.
My past experiences did not define me. Why? Because I refused to let them. My unhappiness was not permanent. I refused to let it be. I stopped letting other people define me .... and I took action to comely overcome my rock bottom. All of it. I overcame all of it.
And I am sharing that story today not to brag - but to remind you that NO MATTER what your rock bottom is, no matter how miserable you are, EVERYTHING and I mean everything you need is right inside you.
Stop trying to change yourself the same old way... if it's not working the way you have tried for years, It's time to get off the hamster wheel and do something different.
<3 You deserve better than that.
