I took the week off last week to regroup and gather myself mentally.
Depression and anxiety are kind of like this gif of Kim Kardashian.
When you’re doing great, they just need to make sure you don’t forget about them.
I don’t write this blog for pity. I write this blog because I know that there are others that have just thought they’re the only ones that have these thoughts and problems.
BUT, don’t worry you guys. I’m baaaAaaack.
Do you ever just look at Pinterest “Inspirational Quotes” hoping that will spark a fire in you to do what you need to do?
Oh…just me? Weird.
In this case, my time scrolling through quotes on Pinterest has actually paid off because I found this gem:
I could be the most popular girl in school, have so many friends, be liked by all, and still be unsatisfied if I don’t approve of myself.
The way that we talk to ourselves is a huge deal.
I know this isn’t a new concept, I know that it’s been preached by every “self-improvement” book and blog out there, yet it’s something that I struggle with, and I’d like to think I’m not alone in this.
Finding satisfaction and approval from within is one of the hardest things to do. I’m still not there, and honestly, I’m nowhere close to it. BUT. I’d like to think that making a conscious effort is half of the battle, and I can truly say that I am making that effort.
When I was at my lightest weight and my strongest, I was the most confident I’d ever been, because I felt like I was doing the most I could.
Inner peace is hard to achieve, but it’s SO worth the fight.
