I’m just like you:
I spent the majority of my life completely confused about what constitutes a healthy relationship. I spent my teens and my 20’s trying REALLY hard to get people to approve of me, especially my 3 relationships. I even spent my early 30’s trying to attempt approval from the outside.
I spent the majority of my 35 years trying to PLEASE EVERYONE around me. And what did it do for me? Nothing. Well, maybe not nothing. It DID leave me exhausted, irritated, sad, frustrated, confused, feeling unworthy, and completely emotional most of the time. I was walking on eggshells around…well, myself.
I’m just like you, or maybe the past you. Either way, my point is, some people may look at me and think I’m “higher” up on the totem pole of life when they follow me on social media. I hate to sugarcoat things, so let me just be blunt for a moment:
I AM JUST LIKE YOU. PERIOD.
Even though I no longer allow myself to be in toxic relationships that leave me feeling completely worthless and crazy, it doesn’t mean I still don’t have my “moments”. I am human. I am a total badass, yes. But, I am just like you; which means YOU are a total badass as well. And don’t you even deny it because you ARE! Listen to learn more!
