WEEK FIVE

PHOTO NUMBER TWENTY-NINE

File_000 copy.jpeg

I have always been someone who struggles with my confidence. I know what it's like to feel like you aren't good enough, fun enough, pretty enough...you name it. I have only very recently become comfortable in my own skin. I tried so hard for so many years to be someone that I wasn't. Once I stopped trying to please everyone around me and decided I would only do what makes me happy, my whole world changed. I believe I became a kinder and more understanding person. I think I used to have a really bad attitude, partially fueled by the fact that I wasn't acting like myself. It can be scary, but give yourself the opportunity to be known. People may surprise you. If you don't get along with someone, focus on those people you do get along with. Life is too short to be surrounded by negative energy. I chose to post this photo because it's one of the rare photos of myself I like. It's hard not to critique yourself. Show yourself some love and celebrate your differences!
