2017 was the worst year of my life. I escaped an incredibly abusive relationship which had to be ended in court. Because of this my grades slipped, and my mental health was affected. I lost faith in my worthiness to even be loved. I spent two years being told my body needed perfecting and my squishy bits were shameful. I hated myself and it had begun to affect how I treated other people. I've spent the last month and a half rediscovering myself outside of the depression caused by everything.
Today, while it's been a battle, I'm learning to love myself again. I'm happy with how my natural body looks. I've realized how incredibly lucky I am to be surrounded by the people who love me. I'm beginning to trust myself and others. I've realigned my energies and realizing not only am I worthy of love but deserving. I so appreciate everyone who supported me and look forwards to sharing the love I have with everyone in my life.
Happy 2018. It's the year of the dog, let's hope it's a good boy.
