I'm Back, I've Grown, I've Changed, I'm the Same

Hi everyone,

Well it's been almost a year and a half since I last blogged and what a roller coaster ride it has been. It has been a time of great personal change and growth, I've come out the other side bruised and battered but stronger and more confident in myself.

I've learned I can't love someone enough if they don't love themselves, I can set boundaries for myself of what I am willing to do and that is my right as a person. I can listen to others but don't have to make their reality my own. I am worth fighting for.

I am again becoming the same strong confident person I was when I was younger and I have missed me. I don't know how I got lost, I think it was incrementally, powered by emotional and physical exhaustion and guilt.

I still have a long ways to go in combating negative self talk but feel I have the tools and support to get me back to the woman I know I can be, for myself and for my children.
