This picture was taken on my exact birthday last year. I look at this girl and the girl writing this post and there have been so much tears, sadness, improvement and change that sometimes I stare at myself in the mirror and ask ‘Is that me?’ I am constantly amazed and surprised at the journey God has placed me on. If you ask me, has it been easy? Certainly not but right now I know it was worth the fight.
For sometime I hated myself, I couldn’t stand to look myself in the mirror because I believed every lie that I thought was true. I am still coming to terms with my past and the truth is I know hurt and pain like the back of my hand. The same hurt that left emotional welts in me came with healing. I have learnt that no matter how broken we seem to be, we are never too shattered to put peace back together.
