Check out the video above. What would you say to your 10-year-old self?
Sometimes, looking in the mirror and finding the courage to say or even think something positive about myself is the hardest part of my day. This comes from years of not having a voice, not feeling heard, feeling like I had to hide and be ashamed. I eventually learned to cope, but by doing all the wrong things-but by being able to grow and find pure, honest connections with the people I love most in my life, I am slowly able to take back some of those horrible things I used to say about myself and replace them with positive vibes and compliments. It doesn’t matter how much I was hurt or had to go through, I am still able to love ME.
