The One Who Found Her Inner Strength

The One Who Found Her Inner Strength

“Choosing self love for me means asking myself what the healthiest choice for ME is. It means being gentle with myself on the hard days and proud of the easier days. It means setting boundaries. It means asking for help and not trying to do everything myself. I purchased my first self love pinky ring shortly after I was sexually assaulted by a coworker and in the ongoing process of therapy, for major depressive disorder and anxiety. My ring symbolized surviving in a huge way for me. Unfortunately, I lost my first ring and have since purchased the mini self love ring and ME ring. Now my rings symbolize a reminder of how far I've come and how important the work I'm doing on myself is. When I feel weak I look back at how awful I felt before and how at time I didn't feel at all. To remind myself I won't go backwards.”
