This year, i am learning to replace the thoughts and words “i am damaged” or “i am broken” with positivity and optimism. i try to focus on saying “i am healing,” “i am starting over” or “i am rediscovering myself.”
some days, i struggle to remain focused and the little voice in my head is quick to fill me with shame and self-pity. on those days, i simply need a little more reassurance than normal. i allow myself to feel, letting the negativity sink in and then, i turn inwards. i remind myself how this ability to heal has forced me to become introspective, allowing me to embrace self-growth as a journey rather than a destination.
it’s in this recollection, i find the negativity slowly shifting towards an immense feeling of empowerment. because “i am rediscovering myself” and i am loving every minute of it 💞
