How do I, you know, meet all my life goals overnight?

Learning to really love and take care of myself was the most beneficial thing I’ve ever done. As someone who used to be extremely depressed and saw no future for myself I cannot believe how far I’ve come and the peace I’ve found within myself through this. It was hard work and the changes didn’t come overnight (I don’t think the work ever stops to be honest). It took a lot of therapy, self help books, focusing on my health and nutrition in every aspect, and strengthening my own inner voice/ intuition.

Learning to love myself and take care of myself gave me the courage to follow that inner voice and eventually lead me to a life better than I could have imagined. I’m not saying it’s a lavish lifestyle by any means but I can say that I am genuinely happy and feel so proud of myself for doing the hard and uncomfortable work to change the things that were blocking me from being the best version of myself.

When you get to a place where you can love you and find that confidence within, you will naturally attract wonderful people into your life and you won’t even be tempted to settle in your relationships (romantic or otherwise).

The fact that you’re even here asking the question shows that you have it in you to make whatever changes you feel are blocking you from being your best, most authentic self. Wishing you lots of love and luck!
