Favorite part of me.. hmm.
I’d have to say my favorite part of me is who I’ve grown to be in the last 15 years. The girl I was back then is nothing like the woman I am today. I’ve had a lot of self growth and acceptance of who I am.
I used to let my self esteem, or lack there of, get the best of me. I used to let my anxiety rule my every move. I used to sit in the corner, scared to speak up.
Today.. I am a different person. Yes, I still have self esteem issues. Yes, I still battle anxiety. Yes, I still have moments where I don’t want to speak up out of fear. However, they no longer consume my whole being.
Fifteen years ago my life was totally different. I was 15 years old and still in high school. I was very shy, didn’t think much of myself, and had been through quite a lot in the couple of years prior. The different experiences I went through made me who I was, but in a bad way. I didn’t have any self worth. I didn’t have any confidence.
Today I am fighting my anxiety, I’m winning at life, and I’ve got an amazing family of my own who have taught me that I am everything I need to be. I am much more confident, I am much more likely to speak my mind, and I have closed that chapter of my life that was holding me back for so long.
It’s a breath of fresh air to be able to say that I’ve moved on, that I have completely closed that chapter and allowed myself to confidently start the next ones. It took a lot of work and without my husband I wouldn’t have grown as much as I have.
This went a lot deeper than I thought it would but I’m glad I can finally say something more than “my eyes.”
What is your favorite part of you?
