Hesitated to post this as I don't want to send out the wrong message but.. took a mirror selfie cos I'm starting to feel like myself again, and recently, that's more rare than anyone realises; my self-esteem and self-confidence have come back!
A month ago, I didn't get the job promotion I REALLY wanted, fell out with one of my good friends & guy I liked didn't like me back.. all at once.. I became miserable and down af for over two weeks that I didn't wanna speak to anyone or answer calls or reply to messages. Deleted my IG followers, deactivated FB, flaked on dates, snapped at peeps, etc.
My dented self-esteem made me feel not good enough and very insecure that I unwittingly projected onto others, questioning their motives & opinions, and rejecting compliments. I got so demotivated at work. I hated my body. I cut people out.
I gradually recovered and this week, I can totally say that the sass is back! 😂😏 My two bestfriends - they were and are always there for me. Only them I was able to tolerate, they helped me get through it. I fucking love those two angels.
Although I still delete my new followers here, I thought IG is a good platform to let it all out so strangers can see it instead of FB where people who I know would give me mixed opinions - I cba with that.
