Check out her post;
If there’s one thing I have struggled with over the years is self esteem😪. It used to be really bad. You know? Always thinking someone else was better than me. More beautiful than me. More talented than me. More loved than me. And so I ended up sabotaging myself. I dimmed my own light so no one could see it.
Of course some reasons led to my self-esteem being that low😥. That is a whole different story that I’ll probably share with you guys some day.
She added that she currently applauds herself looking at the woman she is today.
Looking at myself and the woman I have become, oh my goodness!! I don’t wait to be applauded. I applaud myself😊
I don’t wait for somebody to pat me on the back! I pat my own damn self!! Like..Luxo.. You made it. You came this far!! You’re strong!! You’re beautiful!! You’re amazing!!
I don’t compete with anybody. I compete with my yesterday self. I wanna be a better version of me each day. 😍
I read something from a Bishop friend of mine today. I’ll paraphrase it. It said, If you keep being more of yourself,you become less of another person,and that makes you unique..
Wow!! So true. As I look at this photo right here, I remember days I could not sleep for 4 hours uninterrupted, coz I kept waking up to go use the wash room😂😂(kususu)
My goodness!! That last trimester is not funny at all😂😂😂 . But I made it through that season.😂 Look, however small it may seem in your eyes, you’re doing a great job at being strong. Congratulate yourself. Don’t be too hard on yourself.. You got this. I am rooting for you😍😍😍
