Good morning, lovelies!
I hope you’re all doing well on this beautiful Monday morning. Girl in the Mirror Blogs has been on a bit of a hiatus, and you deserve an explanation as to why.
Life isn’t always easy, especially while trying to navigate the world of recovery. Despite my best efforts, body dysmorphia started winning. I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t eat. I couldn’t function. To be honest, my depression hit a whole new low I hope I never, ever have to experience again.
My goal with Girl in the Mirror is to be a role model. I want girls to be able to look up to me and say, “because of you, I didn’t give up”. Over the past year, I haven’t felt like I could be that positive role model or inspiration, and that killed me on the inside. How was I supposed to help others when I couldn’t even help myself?
I’m here today to say, “I’m back!” New treatments, medications and routines have slowly but surely been helping me get back on track to where I need to be. Over the next few weeks, I hope to open up to all of you and share my experiences to hopefully shed light on mental illness and spread inspiration. I’m ready to be a positive role model: the role model I needed when I was at my lowest point.
