My business failed and my entire world came crashing down. I tried to kill myself, twice in one week.
Then after therapy & medication and starting a new job at the same time as I was struggling to set foot out my front door, I realised the world was still spinning. I realised that I couldn’t set myself on fire to keep others warm. It was the dose of reality I needed to really appreciate what I already had.
It damaged me in a lot of ways, but it also showed me what not to do. I know how it feels now when the relationship isn't right, and it's made me more confident to recognize when I've found something better. I'm with someone now who loves me in the right ways, and treats me the way I deserve to be treated.
I picked a church that I loved not one near my home but not too far. As we rode along I kept praying for courage. The courage to speak my truth.
Dad, I said, is it too late to back out? I don’t think… Yes, he said firmly cutting me off. It’s too late.
So I married a man I didn’t really love. We have 3 amazing kids but are finally divorced.
I also realized that they need me in the sense of time where we ar right now.
If i bake it gives me inner happiness which is unexplainable..🤍✌🏻
Once I made a decision that brought a lot of pain into my life. Not long ago I realised just how much everything I've been put through helped me grow, become self-aware and work towards being a better version of myself. I am grateful for that.
so grateful for that moment.
I just changed my professional field and I'm loving it, because however is suuuuuuper challenging, I am a newbie I am always learning something new, everyday a colleague comes to me and teache or share a new way of viewing my work. So basically everyday I make mistakes, not the same though 🙂
Now I’m grateful for it as I’ve faced fear in the face told it to leave and move to a new house and town and start my healing journey in moving forward in life.
That’s what I’m grateful for is facing my fears head on and pushing through them no matter what
I have learn to a lot. I have gained a lot. I am grateful🙏
Mas ensinaram me a amar me e a respeitar me e a definir barreiras para não deixar todos passarem e não ter medo de não deixar quem eu não quero e não me sentir culpada com isso
I'm grateful that I no longer consider them a "friend". For the past few months I've been working on improving my mental health and self image. As time goes by I realize should've severed ties a long time ago but I'm grateful it happened none the less.
I came to work in agriculture, after 8 years been in many positions, working in the office, but I got a divorce and I felt I can't anymore, I was in burnout and I needed a big change. Everyone was telling me is a mistake and I will regret it, but I found the love of my life and I gave birth to the perfect little girl of my soul.
It's always important to listen the inner voice, and not the voices around you.
