We all have a story with ups and downs. Don't be ashamed to tell your story honestly.
Surround yourself with those that understand your true worth. It is easy to compare ourselves with others, but the truth is our uniqueness makes us special. No person has the right to make us feel disrespected or undervalued.
What do you like to do? What are your passions? Do you know how to follow them? Being who we are and following our passions is an important part of telling our truth and respecting ourselves. Want help learning more about yourself and your passions? Click Here.
A lot of us second guess ourselves, but if we take the time to trust our instincts we usually know if something “feels right”. If it doesn't feel right…get out and get help.
Whether online or in person. We all have a line that we do not want to be crossed.
If your line has been crossed. Get help. If you are in a violent relationship, it is unlikely to just stop or go away. You cannot change your boyfriend or girlfriend's behavior by changing your behavior…. And you are not responsible in any way for the violence. Your boyfriend or girlfriend may need counseling or other outside help to change and you may need support so that you can begin to heal. Read more information on how and where to get help. Click Here.
