I felt so alone and isolated. Everyone around me seemed to be the biggest jerks on the planet. I felt like everything they did was to just hurt me more. I felt like I wasn’t good enough and would never be. I felt like I was drowning. I finally was willing, out of desperation, to seek some help. To have someone look at me and tell me that I was perfect, even though I couldn’t accomplish the things I wanted to. To tell me that I was perfect just the way I am, faults and all hit me so deep my emotions overflowed.
There was a huge change in me in that moment. I feel like my soul opened to the people around me. Not to rely on them but to be open and real. I didn’t need to hide myself, or the things that I struggled with. I began to accept myself and love myself. When I talked about things I was struggling with, it wasn’t to complain or get attention. It was just to talk in general. It honestly gave me a healthier view on the struggles. They weren’t something that were bringing me down or holding me back. They were what proved how strong I was, and they were just a regular part of life that helps to shape us.
I took the steps to accept the help that was available to me. Because of that I am mentally in a healthier place. Which helped me have the confidence to physical meet my health goals. If you are struggling and having a hard time keeping your head up. Please know there is help and support out there. That by going and accepting that help you aren’t showing weakness. You are showing strength and becoming stronger. You are perfect, just the way you are.
