The Glow Up Is Real!
We are all hard on ourselves one way or another that we forget how far we’ve come. I thought about this as I came across some old photos of me on social media. I have to admit that I still get anxiety and feel embarrassed to think about people seeing those photos of me when I wasn’t my best self, when I was heavier, or even for the way I talk in a video. Heck, I’m having anxiety right now just thinking about it. Then I started to think of how I’ve been hard on myself this week and I started comparing my past and current selves. I’ve been through a lot and I say that without feeling sorry for myself. I’ve dealt with loss, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual pain, severe anxiety and depression, and judgment along the way. But I guess I have to give myself credit for how far I’ve come so far. Because I have come a long way. I still deal with challenges. Even if I don't talk about them on social media. It definitely hasn’t been an easy road and there’s a lot more I want to achieve. It's taken me a lot to post this. But I feel it was just something I was called to do. In the collage below, the photos on the left are older ones that I've been embarrassed about and the ones on the right are all photos I've taken this year.
SO I HOPE YOU TOO WILL GIVE YOURSELF SOME CREDIT FOR HOW FAR YOU'VE COME! THE GLOW UP IS REAL!
