A lot of people see this picture and assumed that it was the best time of my life. Real talk...IT WAS THE WORSE! I had just arrived to Atlanta, to live....separated from my husband and was FRESH into depression. Nails done, hair done, everything did EXCEPT my soul and piece of mind.
Depression was an understatement. I was living in a room with my 8yr old son and 5 month old daughter. I was also pregnant with West and had NO CLUE that i was pregnant, in this very picture. I didn’t know what i was doing or where my life was going.
I cried daily. I’d wait until my son was in school, daughter was in daycare for a few hours, I’d go into the bathroom and scream. I’d talk to myself. I’d pray and cry. Pray and cry. I’d think about who could watch or have my kids if i magically went missing. My husband told me he wanted a divorce and my heart SHATTERED. I’m like “i done sat through so much and this what you’re telling me?!!” I never pictured that being an option. I was hurt and began to feel worthless like something was really wrong with me. Man y’all don’t have a CLUE.
I have placed every single piece of me as a woman into a marriage and although i have no regret, i have learned plenty. Here is what I’ve learned ladies:
🚨1) your happiness is UP TO YOU! It is not predicated on the actions of anyone else.
🚨2) if you don’t value yourself, NO ONE WILL.
🚨3) do not feel like you cannot make it without a man. YOU ARE THE PRIZE.
I’m all about business and i love it, but for a huge part of my life it was a distraction from me really working on ME and realizing how BANGING i really was. There is a lot about me that i am fixing, but there is a lot about me that has BEEN AMAZING and it took me tooo long to see it.
When you see it.....RUN WITH IT and don’t look back.... #LOVEONYOU
