When I think about my life, I just want to hug the hurting, anxious child and teen I was and cheer for the woman I am becoming.
I still have a lot of growing and healing to do, but I’m thankful that I’ve come this far. I don’t have to “put on” a happy face anymore, because I’m genuinely happy now. Even when stresses build up, I’m still truly happy with my life and who I am today.
I am becoming. I am becoming stronger, more peaceful, more confident in my worth, confident in my right to take up space on this planet, more loved and more loving. I am becoming who I was destined to be.
If life hurts right now for you I want to encourage you that you are still becoming too. There is light and hope out there for you. Please don’t give up.
