“I wasn’t searching for something or someone… I was searching for me.”
Happy New Year Beautiful Woman!
Thank you for joining me on this journey of self-discovery. Like you I bear many titles, daughter, sibling, girlfriend, friend, student, etc., and life is passing me by. Just yesterday I swear I was a dependent, worried about the moron who chose to date the popular school girl over me! Now today, life is spiraling out of control and I’m nearly suffocating behind the smile I put on to save face and the pain of interrogation.
I have asked myself, why do I hide? What’s so wrong with not being okay? Because until I’m not okay, I can’t be better. It’s a total mind F**k (pardon my french), but more so, it’s damaging to my mental stability. Who is to blame, society? Is it this age of media that makes us believe that unless we have it all together RIGHT NOW, we will never be happy or acquire success?
Like many women, I have endured pains that have held me captive over the course of my life. In this New Year and those to follow, my desire is to find myself, healing, and be at peace in my mind. I have a voice (or ten fingers to type) and through this blog, I will talk about my own happenings and what I have learned over the course of my education to overcome it. During this quest to reveal the woman who has been shamed and change my life, I challenge you to be receptive and find solace in what my heart has to share; so that you too can Unveil her.
