I wanted to write this post today with some words of wisdom because we all go through days where we don’t feel our best; where we feel like absolute shit; where we feel worthless or “not enough” because society can really affect the way we perceive ourselves; where we feel lonely even though in reality, your best friend is only a phone call away.
I go through cycles of feeling down in the dumps to the point where I don’t’ want to get out of bed, to days where I feel so elated and proud of myself I could do a happy dance everywhere I go. But you know what? I don’t think it’s a shameful thing to experience this. Because it’s the hardest of times, the saddest of times and the most frustrating of times that toughen your shell to get you through even harder obstacles in life. And it makes the better moments worthwhile.
