A Little Bit About Me

I am from a very small town where everyone knows everything about everyone. I was never one of the “popular” kids in school. I never really dated in school. I always had a knack of turning every guy I met into my best friend. From there, I didn’t want to take a chance of ruining that relationship so I would not allow it to go any further.

I couldn’t wait to get out of my little town. I moved in with my best friend who lived in Nashville. We had a lot of fun times until our place was broken into one night while we were out. That scared me enough to make me return back to my little town.

I have horrible taste in men. I have a tendency to go for the “bad boys.” What girl doesn’t, right?  We all think that we can change them. Well ladies, I have finally realized that you can’t change/save anyone that doesn’t want to be helped. My attraction to bad boys led me to a series of unhealthy relationships.  (I’ll elaborate on that later.) My history of relationships is why I’m constantly getting the “why have you never been married?” and “why have you never had kids?” I know what they are really wanting to say is “WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU?”

Well… there is nothing wrong with me and it has taken me a long time to realize that. I am learning that before I can love anyone I have to learn to love myself and build and improve my self esteem.

So this is my journey now.

My Mission

I’m just a normal person who has struggled my whole life with self esteem issues, low confidence, self body shaming and feeling that I’m never “enough”… not smart enough, not pretty enough, not thin enough, etc. I feel that I am being called in this self help blog to help people with these same issues.

I am making a safe place for everyone and anyone to come and share your stories and feelings. I will respond the best that I can. I WILL NEVER JUDGE YOU! Sometimes we just need to vent and let it out.

I believe that everyone is beautiful regardless of size, shape, gender, skin color or sexual orientation. Beauty is more than just skin deep. There is beauty in everyone and everything around us. Sure we all have those days where we just have to look a little harder to find it. That’s a normal part of being human.

I will always be honest with you in my self help blog and everyone knows that honesty isn’t always pretty.
