To all the people who: took advantage of me, used me, put me down, took me for granted, broke me down, left me in tears; not even caring if I drowned.
T H A N K Y O U
You made me question my self-worth, who I was, what I deserved and whether or not I was enough.
It was in my lowest of places that I found my strength. It was during my times of struggle where my pain pushed me towards my purpose. Each and every single time that I was knocked down my faith was put to the test. And each time I fought to make it through I became stronger.
Through all of the pain, ups and downs, obstacles and challenges I found myself and my inner strength. I know who I am, what I want, what I deserve and what I won't settle for. My self-love and self-respect game is strong. ♡ •••Today I ran a 10k with lots of hills in this exhausting heat. I was slower than normal and that's okay. What really mattered was that even when I wanted to give up I didn't. I fought like hell to keep going when I had thoughts of quitting. I used every ounce of effort, energy and strength to push myself. Nothing and I mean nothing makes me more proud than being able to give myself a pep talk when I'm struggling on my run and not quitting.•••
