I spent 4 years miserable in a toxic relationship. It was only after it ended that I realized I wasn’t the person I used to be. I didn’t want to admit it to myself but I was broken inside. I had lost that sparkle in my eye. I was emotionally numb. I had lost my glow after living with so much negativity for so long.
I had to figure out who the hell I was after I cut ties with my ex for good. He was a part of my identity for so long that I was scared to stand on my own. But once I was no longer being put down on the daily, I started to remember who I was before I met my ex. Ambitious. Determined. Silly. Outgoing. Goal-Getter. I wanted that girl back and over the next year, I focused on my personal growth and healing after my relationship.
But, girl, I won’t bullshit you. I made some mistakes after my breakup that caused my healing process to be way longer than necessary. I carried around so much repressed sadness and anger that I refused to face for a long time.
It was post-breakup that I found my passion for helping other women in toxic relationships. Nothing pisses me off more than a disrespectful man because I know just how damaging it can be. I help women get through breakups and re-build their self-worth and confidence.
Other than that, I fall in love with dogs on a regular basis. I really love traveling and exploring new places. I studied abroad in Rome for a semester in college and it was the greatest experience of my life! I have been to around 15 countries so far and hopefully, this blog will allow me to see some more soon.
May you always find time to breathe, hustle hard and glow like the sun.
