I found this picture when I was searching for something on my hard drive, this morning. It gave me chills and I got myself immersed on this state sadness at first, because I reported myself back to that time of my life…
I was overweight, only after 6 months being in US, extremely depressed because I felt so alone, even thou I had many friends and SUPER ashamed for being like that. I remember at that point I sent no pictures to anyone in Brazil and I literally felt like a failure…I couldn’t even look at myself in the mirror!!
I had no self-love!
I was ashamed!
I felt guilty for leaving my family in another country!
I was emotionally eating, so I could protect myself by gaining weight…
I was depressed
I was certainly miserable, nothing would give pleasure in life…nothing!!!
After snapping out of it and coming back to the present, I must honor that girl and that time. She kept going, started to plant the seeds to get where I am now…Of course A LOT has happened since and yes, I had to go through many lessons that was able to build who I am today. I won’t lie, it wasn’t EASY, but I say it was WORTH IT!!
So, DO NOT take in consideration where the person is now, but what they have been through. The strength that takes to keep going is massive, because YOU are the only one who can do for yourself, no one can’t! Blaming others is nothing but a waste of time!
I would do all over again, because I wouldn’t change the ME today for anything else, I SO LOVE who I am, Liz you are AMAZING, I love you girl!!!
