The other day I was talking to an old classmate from high school and she kept saying how much I have changed. At first I thought, yeah I have changed a bit. But after we were done talking I kept thinking about the person I once was and I realized I am truly not the same person I was in high school or even 20 for the matter. Over the last 5 years have grown and transformed into a completely person. I am proud of how far I have come and you should too!
When people make comments about how much you have changed, don’t take it negatively. In fact, change is great! Change means that you have evolved and grown. I have personally grown in ways I didn’t even realize I needed to grow. I have learned to respect myself and my mental space. I have grown into a women who knows what she deserves and won’t take any less. Along the way, I learned to heal and love myself. I look back on the things I use to allow or the way I used to tolerate being treated, and honestly cringe. I have become the women I never knew I needed to be but the women that I know I need and deserve to be.
Growth is beautiful.
Growth can often be uncomfortable, messy, and full of unexpected feelings. The process isn’t always pretty but the end results is a beautiful victory.
