When I was younger I had really bad self-esteem issues. I had a hard time making friends and I usually stuck to myself. As I grew older, my self esteem issues carried with me and I would find myself trying to do whatever to fit in to be accepted and feel “normal”.
       As the years went on and I reached my 20’s, I went into a deep depression. I had spent so many years trying to fit in with others that I didn’t take the time to figure out WHO I WAS. At the age of 23 I decided to find me. I always felt in my heart that I wanted to be someone amazing and I was always creative, so I used those things to find me.
       I created an art journal. They say writing down your goals helps to manifest them. Well I wanted to SEE and HEAR my story. I bought a book from the art store and pasted different pictures from magazines in it. Over the years I kept adding to it. I talked about who I was, who I wanted to be and what I wanted in life. As I look back I see how those things that I could only imagine are now a reality.
       Life is a journey, and everyday I’m learning more about who I am and who I want to become and although it may not always be easy, what I can say is that I can finally just be ME.

  1. I think that this is awesome. I do not know you personally but we are all sisters in this world. I want you to know that you are an amazing person for sharing your journey. Never forget that you are worth every dream and goal that you have set for yourself. Yes there maybe obstacles along the way but keep your faith and your head held high because the light at the end of the tunnel will always be worth it. I wish you all the best in your endeavors and never forget their are people who you may not know personally in your corner wanting to see you succeeded. Good luck on everything.

  2. Low self-esteem is definitely something I can relate too. It is no joke and can paralyze you mentally, keep you from your greatness and block you from your true vision that God has for you. Alexis I pray this reaches and touches the lives of those who are suffering from low self-esteem, peer pressure, date rape, all that women go thru in life it’s self. I love you sis keep pushing, you got this!!
