The people I love more than anything knew nothing of what I felt. I was a chameleon. Adapting to what others needed me to be. I swear my soul was getting pretty frustrated; I needed a change.
Confidence is such a beautiful thing when you have it, and a real dark and ugly place when you don’t. No matter what is thrown at us, we have the ability to overcome it. We can change our mindset, we can practice and we can do better.
What does therapy look like to you?
My mental health is pretty darn good, although, I have had a long history of self medicating. Reach out if you are struggling.
I always congratulate myself when I’ve done a big girl thing, because we, even as adults, need to recognize growth. No matter what your situation is, addiction or mental instability, or just a shitty year- be proud of your accomplishments.
You are not a domesticated animal. Rebel... defend your freedom...
I just broke down. I wasn’t sad. It was a release. I was happy. I found myself looking back at these last 4 years and I was so incredibly proud of myself. I was happy for me and my sobriety.
Drinking is a memory I'd like to forget, but my strength and determination to stay sober will never be forgotten. Get back to life! Ready for a new project?
What a sad day. I had PTSD arising from my alcohol dependency. I felt strong after and ready to tackle life, then I witnessed an overdose. Reflection and gratitude come to mind!
Victim mentality and chronic illness takes a lot from you. See how my alcoholism affected something that makes me ME. I took back my power.
Be yourself. Be unapologetically yourself. Be true to yourself.
Ever smell booze after being sober for so long and you get sick? It's not just you!
