REAL & RAW: Those that know me know just how strong minded I am. I took pride in just that. I raise my daughters the same way and my son to be nothing but respectful towards women. But one morning a few months back I woke up and something was different. I became withdrawn, quiet and struggled to even leave the house. The thought of stepping foot in a gym gave me the most severe anxiety I’ve ever experienced. I felt worthless, the evil voice inside of my head made me believe that I was nothing. That everyone was judging me, making me believe that if I stepped up on stage to compete again I would only be laughed at. I hated feeling this way. I hated my friends seeing me this way as I saw it as nothing short of weakness, and I would never want my daughters to feel this way, but I couldn’t stop it from consuming me. I was in a very dark, dark hole and struggled each day to understand how I was ever going to climb out of it. Honestly if it wasn’t for my kids I’m not sure where I’d be right now. I’m not better, in fact I still have days that take me straight back to the beginning but I’m on the right path. Im starting to fall back in love with the gym and understand why I started training to begin with. I have an amazing group of family and friends that have been supportive and I know that I will only come out of this stronger then ever. I wasn’t going to post this but it’s time social media became fuckin real. It’s not always rainbows and unicorns. Or perfect lighting and holidays. Shit happens. People fall. So that’s it. I fell. I fell fuckin hard. But I got up, and now im standing tall. If you see this. And you have a moment of feeling like this. Please don’t ever think that talking to someone makes you weak, or stupid. Don’t make the mistake I did. Everyone matters. YOU MATTER. ❤️💜💚
