That feeling when you step off the roller coaster. 😅 In the last year I’ve lost & gained so much. And what a difference a year can make.
After years of not being able to breathe, being taken for granted, being made to understand that I wasn’t worth much, I said stop. I left.
I met someone, straight away, we fell head over heels. He broke my heart. 💔
I’ve always put all my energy & passion into my work. I burnt out & lost my job.
Hypersensitive, I’d spent years training my mind to filter everything & create walls. Well, not only did humpty fall off his wall, the wall came down too. 🤷🏼♀️
I came face to face with myself. 💥
It’s been a hell of a year for self growth and learning & self-acceptance: ⤵️
I finally faced, head on, the grief of losing a parent. Something I'd managed to put off for over 3 years.
I learnt to embrace my hypersensitivity, to let it drive me. Channeling my emotional state into my passions and my projects has let me move forward with a great many things.
I discovered the beauty of a relationship with someone just like me, where there’s that kind of magnetism that goes beyond touch. You’re connected emotionally, intuitively, painfully. As I said, he broke me, but I understand. I also now know that this is the kind of love I need.
I’ve accepted that I may never have that second child. I still have hope!
I came to terms with a medical diagnosis that gives me no choice but to start taking care of myself. And now, not later.
I launched my own activity and I found a new job.
I’ve realized I’m petrified of ending up alone.
I need to share, build and grow with someone - and for that I’m ready 💪🏻
“Everything happens for a reason. The challenge is finding that reason.” I first published this quote in October 2018. It’s still all true.
✨ Sometimes the reason behind our troubles will not become clear for a long time, maybe even years. We just have to keep looking forward and trust that something positive will come from everything that is now behind us. All the while keeping our mind open so that we are able recognize the reason when it comes along.
