When I posted about feeding your mind... I thought I want to find a picture of myself when I first moved to Indiana. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Six years ago.
You can see the girl on the left was someone totally different than the girl on the right. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I didn’t believe in myself.
I spoke to myself in a hateful way.
There were not many things I loved about myself.
I had no clue who I was or what I wanted out of life.
One thing I was sure of was that I was capable of more.
The sad bullshit story I told myself about who I was had to go.
When I started to listen to audios about how amazing I was even when I didn’t think so... I started to believe in myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I beat depression without medication.
I discovered 3 sisters I never knew about and my biological father. Which was a piece of my broken heart that needed healing.
I beat postpartum depression without medications.
I beat high blood pressure without medication.
I left a highly destructive and abusive relationship.
I quit a lot of destructive choices I was making.
I quit drinking all alcohol.
I beat Crohn’s Disease without medication. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let’s just say: the mind is so powerful.
Another broken piece of my heart is my biological mother has a traumatic brain injury. She inspires me to develop and work the muscle that is the most important. My brain.
She is missing part of hers, but she is
And just a real inspiration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You need to train your brain and the rest will follow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Everyday I kept believing in myself.
I still have to work on this daily.
It like part of my workout to tell myself what a badass I am. Lol ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can tell a lot about someone’s eyes.
My eyes were so broken on the left.
That was the day my husband met me, and he was the one who told me about seeing a lot in someone’s eyes.
I asked him why he didn’t run! Lol
I look so tired, and sad.
He said he saw something more than what the picture shows.
He truly was sent to me. You need to be around people who believe in you.
