Lets face it , the majority of us at some point in time and perhaps over an extended period of time have found ourselves in harmful and even degrading situations . It could have been physical abuse , sexual abuse ,bullied or emotional abuse all of which is extremely harmful to the person who finds themselves experiencing the abuse . Weve been let down by family and friends .Those who were supposed to protect us at all cost has even possibly blamed us for causing the situation . We have been disappointed, broken , and bruised . We are lonely , lost and slowly dying inside .
Because of the hurt we have experience , we have developed coping mechanisms to just keep putting one foot in front of the other . Some turn to drugs , alcohol, or food . We don't like what happened to us or what has and is being said to us . We lack the motivation to even live . We avoid the mirror simply because we don't like the person who will look back at us . We have no joy , no happiness . We just exist .
A year ago , that was me .I turned to food to get me from day to day . I gained 200 pounds ( at 5 ft 2 in that's a lot of weight ) . I was depressed , discouraged and despondent . I fiercely loathed myself . I cant tell you what or how it all began to change except for the fact that I was tired of being of victim.
No, we didn't ask for life to deal us a bad hand . We didn't ask for the heartbreaks and disappointments , but it happened . We can not change the past but we shouldn't let the past keep changing us for the worst. No matter what has been done or said to you , YOU ARE WORTH every step you take in the right direction . You just have to see it .YOU have to believe that You are worth fighting for . Make the decision today that YOU will BELIEVE in YOU and when You unleash the power of belief ...watch out because YOU will be unstoppable
I believe in You so
