There was a time I thought I could handle everything life threw at me on my own.
When you start your adult life in a male dominated career field and you’re expected by your peers and the public to ALWAYS have EVERYTHING under control...or you’re weak, or a bitch, or “crazy.” You develop a hard exterior and a mentality of not needing anyone else.
I didn’t need anyone to help me up (I’m not weak). I didn’t need anyone to cry to (that’s not allowed, right?). I didn’t need to lean on anyone else (who would understand anyways?) I didn’t need supporters. (I’m good by myself). I didn’t need personal development (I’m just fine the way I am). I didn’t need someone to tell me what to do for workouts or nutrition (Pssh, what do you know that I don’t?) I didn’t need someone to teach me about budgeting (You mean you can’t just live off credit?😳) I had everything under control! Until I didn’t! 😳
Ya’ll, my life has flipped upside down the past 3 years. I was just turning 30 and at the top of my game in my career #bosslady , had the best guy a girl could ask for, and had my finances under control for the first time EVER! Then...one “minor” injury that’d been nagging at me for a couple years turned out to be a bigger deal than originally thought and ended up ending my career 😢 #devastated
I’ve spent the past 3 years unemployed or settling for jobs that didn’t challenge or fulfill me in anyway. Cue the #worthless feelings and stress eating & weight gain & lack of confidence & so on and so on. 👇🏽👇🏽CONTINUED IN COMMENTS👇🏽👇🏽
