During the time I was creating my book, The Diary of She, I felt like I was going through a lot; trying to find myself and my purpose. I spent a lot of time inside my head.
I was constantly feeling like I would never be good enough…for anything. Not a man, a friend, or a good career.
Everyone thought of me as this super strong woman. They didn’t bother to see how I was doing, if I was truly okay and I didn’t bother offering up my emotions. Instead I let myself slowly crumble to pieces. I had no clue how I was going to put myself back together.
Through that process…of picking up the pieces, I had to tell myself it was okay to look back. Not on things and people that were holding me back, bring me down, keeping me stuck; but on things that would help elevate me.
I had to tell myself to let go of my negative thoughts and try to stay positive, even on the days I didn’t see the good in anything or one.
With life, disappointment and setbacks are bound to happen. It’s on us to keep moving forward. To stop looking back on what could have or should have been.
Focus on what’s in front of you.
Fix, what you can in that moment.
