"I'm not where I want to be, but thank God I'm not where I used to be."
Random life update, but I've been doing a lot of reflecting recently, and I'm feeling pretty proud of myself. The past year has been a whirlwind that I wasn't expecting to be thrown into, but I see now that I absolutely needed it. Introspection is hard. Recognizing your own toxic behavior is really hard. Accepting and working to change that behavior is even harder, but SO worth it.
I'm not the person I was a year ago, and for the first time (probably ever), I'm confident and proud of who I am, and I don't have to rely on anyone else to make me feel that way. My insecurities don't regulate my behavior. I'm self-sufficient, strong, and happy. Moral of the story: after it's all said and done, all you have is yourself. So embrace change and put in the hard work, because there's no growth without struggle. You won't be disappointed. Okay, rant over.✌️ at Bellingham, Washington
