I’ve honestly never known #confidence . Acne made its mark on my flesh and #mistakes beat me like a slave #painting only #regret . #Pictures were #great as long as I wasn’t in them. In the past, I was consumed with what others thought about me that I never really took note of my own opinion, of me. Recently, I begun to explore into my unknown cosmos. Beliefs, #values and #desires . I sometimes get so stuck in the past that I’m blinded of the #beauty that is now. I have always believed that inner beauty was the real #pearl of the #soul because if cared for right. It can get even more beautiful with time. This #belief is one big mile stone on my quest and I #honestly #love who I truly am. I battle things though like #addiction , #mentalillness issues and #depression which I compete with daily. When I reach the summit after a long and painful defeat. I see just how beautiful I truly am because my inner light shines through this dying shell. Inside me exist a genuinely kind person who in the past could be cold, cruel and angry. Now I’m a #friend that many don’t want to forget. Inside me exist a #woman #strong enough now, to NOT allow my #kindness to be #weakness , causing me harm. Weakness is a sign that #growth is needed. In that very moment when u think u have had enough, the rays burst forth to #light the way. My mirror cast a #happy #glow . I know my worth so now its time to finally let it show. Being #vulnerable is pillar of strength because it takes #courage to open yourself to someone with the gambling knowledge they’ll view u as weak. Strength is hidden within these mental wars. Stamped on my heart is a medal of🥇 #success . My battle is always silent but #victory is now the trumpet, singing a champions quartet.
