I did so many horrible things when I was in survival mode. I drank, did drugs, slept around, lied, cheated + stole. I ran from my pain, my anxiety, my depression. I numbed + avoided being in my skin at all costs. After I rid myself of this armor, I had to then rid myself of the shame I felt from using the armor… I had to let it all go.
You’re human. You’re allowed a second, third + forth chance. Self sabotage + self pity does nothing but hold you captive. It’s not over for you, it’s just the beginning. Let yourself heal. Forgive yourself, because God already has. Learning to love yourself is a process, but once you let it in, you can then spread it into the world. 💓🙏🏼
