A year ago today, I hit rock bottom. My life was falling apart, I was a mess, broken, lost. Most of you didn’t even follow me a year ago. You can’t find anything on my Instagram from a year ago. I crashed and burned. My whole world shattered and I struggled to piece it back together for the entirety of 2018. Some days I’m still healing from the same scars.
But daaaaaamn, a lot can change in a year! Things are so much better. I’m happier on my own. I’m more focused and driven. I practice self-love where I used to engage in self-sacrifice. I have a home, a safe space. I’m doing me, and quite frankly, I’m fucking awesome.
I battled every day to get here. It wasn’t easy. But if you look back at your life a year ago, or two, or three, you’ll see that things always change. And for those of you in a dark place, let that be a source of great strength for you. This won’t last, it never does. Your life is worth fighting for, so keep battling to make it everything you want it to be. Persistence is always victorious.
