Give birth to the new you - @thechrisdowning
Y’all I heard this today and was hit with the biggest sea of emotions.
I feel like it’s one of those phrases that you can interpret so many different ways, but today? Today it was much needed.
Ya see - my anxiety has been real the last few months. I used to be able to ignore it, but after having Aurora, immediately being put on a highly hormone packed birth control, and becoming a 19 year old single mother in the span of a year - my anxiety hit a crippling new level.
Not only was I faced with the realization that I had survived multiple abusive relationships, and an eating disorder - but I had never felt more alone. I didn’t recognize myself anymore, and I just tried to push through.
This went on for 4 years y’all, and it wasn’t until the beginning of this year I started to truly learn to embrace myself for who I am.
There have always been small moments where I felt okay, but something would happen, and I’d sink.
Lately, I’ve been having more and more days. More days I’m me. More days I find more of me.
The world can be heavy sometimes y’all. But at the end of the day, only you have the power to be who you want.
You can’t blame others or situations - you can birth a new you.
You just have to be willing to put in the work.
Day 1/21 of this new program, and it’s a good feeling. 🤸🏻♀️ - 6 hours ago
