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.
