Many of you have reached out to make sure that I was okay, and I really appreciate those gestures. It’s comforting to know that all of you here are continuous support system, and I feel terrible for being absent for so long without explanation.
I’ve wanted to make this post for quite a while, but each time I’d go to write, afraid of how it would be received, I was unable to find the words. I’m still not sure what to say, or how to say it, but I am back :)
Usually, I’m completely comfortable in being vulnerable and transparent, in fact, I strive to be, and I think that’s why it’s important for me to share not only my strengths, triumphs, and pride, but also to openly and honestly be in a place of vulnerability, with you all as well as myself.
Beyond the struggles I may be amidst, I’m reminded that my worth is not defined by such; that is something I feel many people neglect acknowledging.
Your worth and value is not bound by stigmas, by perceptions, by closed minds.
I’m excited, and quite nervous (aha), to get back into the swing of posting regularly again. I’ve so missed the interactions I‘ve had, the people I’ve met, the relationships I’ve built, and the community I’ve found that I call home; where the relationship with myself has grown past what I recognized; where I can be myself, openly, authentically, and with a sense of pride I once never thought possible, in hopes that through my visibility, others will find they are not alone.
You, are not alone.
