I needed to write this post as I’ve been going through some personal stuff lately. I’ve been struggling with my self confidence and feeling good about my body. For the past couple of days I’ve fallen back into old behavior of comparing myself to bloggers who are more successful than me. Honestly this has been a huge struggle for me because I easily fall into the trap of thinking others have it easier than I do. I found myself again being envious of others who I perceive as having the “perfect life, clothes, relationships..etc”. Once I started down this road, instantly everything in my life became a disappointment and it has snowballed into a full on funk. Knowing I was headed down a slippery slope, I reached out Jeniese and my BFF Shoshanna for a dose of insightful real talk. Their judgment free support is exactly what I needed to help me start to emerge from my funk. I’m not 100% right now but I’m confident I will get through this rough patch. I know I am blessed and have wonderfully positive things going on in my life. Are there things in my life that need to change? Absolutely but I know with some professional help (because lets face it, sometimes talking to your girls just isn’t enough), support of my friends and my faith, I can make that change.
Have a wonderful day!
