✦ Real Talk ✦
Back when I suffered from depression, I felt like I was missing out on life because I didn’t go out partying, drinking, dating.
Today, I no longer feel like I missed out on anything 10 years ago.
During that time when everyone else around me was ‚making memories‘, I got to know myself.
I established a proper relationship with myself, uncovered parts that needed healing, I worked on being a person I was able to love. I haven’t always been happy, confident, positive and empowering. I even was pretty much the exact opposite of the person that I am today. Funny how things change.
Instead of making new friends and meeting people, I worked on finding my passions, things that would bring me joy and got in touch with my spiritual side. I inhaled books and started nourishing myself well.
This way, I was laying the foundation for a whole new life I would finally enjoy living. I started from scratch and over time, I managed to design the life of my dreams.
What I am saying is: everything you can imagine for yourself is possible.
Every experience, whether it’s good or bad, is a lesson. The goal is to find that lesson, learn from and apply it to your life in the future.
I am so grateful that I was in this dark place back then because it brought me to a place in life I didn’t even know would exist for me. Today’s reality sometimes feels unreal. I am part of a movement that makes a change. I am connected to the kindest, most inspiring people I could have imagined calling my friends - worldwide.
I have built a life that I love waking up to each and every single day. I built my career around my passions and call what I enjoy doing the most my job. I no longer just exist, but actually l i v e .
Today, I am grateful for every single hardship I went through in my life so far. Every single one that has taught me so many lessons and made me learn about myself.
