I am happy to say I am part of the beautiful @theLYPproject - this project means so much to me & I'm so thankful I was given the chance to be apart of it. I used to be so scared about opening up to people, being myself....I was afraid of what people were going to say & I didn't feel comfortable in my skin. At one point in my life I was bullied emotionally, and because of that I didn't want be on this earth anymore. I felt like I was ugly, not worth it, nobody cared for or about me, and I didn't want to be alive anymore. There was one time I sat in my bathtub while the shower was running so my parents didn't hear me...I cried and cried while holding a razor to my wrist. I was going through a rough moment in my life especially at a very young age. I didn't cut myself, instead I found and talked with God and God sent me my boyfriend. He opened my eyes and allowed me to be the person I am today. I am who I am because of him and his ability to love me, care for me, call me beautiful every second of everyday. I am able to love myself because of him and for that I am forever grateful. So many people go through life ashamed, scared, etc about who they are, the way they look, and for being themselves. I am here to tell you, stop! Stop worrying about what other people think, stop caring. You are you. You were handpicked to do great things, to make an impact, you are a gift to this sacred earth. Love yourself, for who you are. Self love is the best love! ✨ Love your self to PIECES!
