That photo on the left popped up on TimeHop this morning and as I scrolled through, I did a double take and went back and looked at that photo. It was taken six years ago. That smile says it all. I was unhappy, insecure, not confident, uncomfortable in my own skin, and my mental health was down the drain.
But that photo on the right is the woman I know now. The photo was taken a few weeks ago. That smile is the one I see 99% of the time. It is not fake or forced, but genuine. Six years later, things are not perfect.
But I can tell you that I am happy more often than unhappy, a lot less insecure, a lot more confident, in a constant state of growth with being comfortable in my own skin, and so much more aware of where my mental health is (and how to catch it & fix it when it starts dropping).
