Why is there so much social stigma around loneliness? like it’s something to pity, fix, or avoid at all costs? i think we’ve been programmed to think that lonely = personal problems, unlucky with love, and neediness. it’s not true. you can be owning your solo life, but still feel waves of loneliness. this is valid and normal.
i’m happy, confident, and completely whole, just as i am. i love my own company and my independence but sometimes i get hit with it. not because i’m longing for a partner, *waiting* for the day they find me. no no. truthfully, that is the last of my concerns at the moment. it’s just a normal emotional response. our brains are hardwired for connection. loneliness is my body telling me i’m craving authentic meaningful interaction. it’s nothing to be ashamed about, or to avoid. just sit with it and let it pass. sometimes i get a good cry out, sometimes i text my parents and ask them to have a movie night. i’ll cuddle chloe and sleep at their house. sometimes i make tea and have a friend over to talk (always making sure they have the emotional capacity to listen to me). it’s okay to ask for what you need. loneliness is not a weakness, character flaw, or something to ignore. we have to recognize that.
the other day i talked with a friend, told her how i have been feeling lately, and she asked “what kind of response would be helpful to you?” and i said..”nothing. i just want to be heard.” i really don’t need advice, ways to “fix” it, or suggestions on how to avoid it. i don’t want sympathy or “oh just enjoy this time of your life you’re lucky you’re single.” “your time will come, he’s out there” type responses. i just want to be heard. a “for sure, totally know what you mean.” is cool. hold space and listen. that is more than enough. #bucknakedkitchen

Authenticity came up in a convo today with a dear friend i respect and love. she had me thinking about it (obviously since i’m now writing about it) and how do you actually know if one is being real. i have the worst personality trait, it’s the mirror or chameleon, personality. i pretty much get along with everyone because i mirror their vibe. it has its pros and cons, but i am truly authentic with each of these individuals. i have found that in the past month, i have been extremely patient and less stressed than i have been in quite some time. i truly chalk that up to positive thinking, not giving into negativity, eating healthier, having better influences around me, and staying active. it is something that i have really had to practice daily, oddly it just doesn’t come naturally 😂#wellness#toxicfree#motivation#realtalk#livelife#loveyourself#love#beyourself#whoareyou#crazycatlady#wednesdaywisdom
The past few years have been a journey the life i was living the killer house parties trying to hide the pain of missing my mom crying out for help and no one was trying to help i was lol but i forgot who i married @godiva84 . you will definitely find out when you hit s***s creek. i’m sharing this not to be personal on facebook but to show celebrities go through stuff hope this bless someone. #loveyourself
Life update: i’ve been mia honestly because my life has been 1946378% off track. i’ve recently moved to a new city, joined a gym that i wasnt completely comfortable in so i either a). wasn’t working out or b). the workout was trash but i’ve joined a crunch again( not home) but these last two days have been the best workouts i have had in a very long time & i have meal prepped. i’m so excited to start this cutting phase and get the lean look i want. body update: been feeling fluffy asf but a leaner christian is on the way. 😏 also a side note, finding a gym you are comfortable in is important. at the end of the day you have to make yourself happy.

I've tried to tell someone. at least i tried to share, asking for advice. but, at the time i told someone, i have to stop because they started to tell about their problems.
somehow it made me realize, does everyone deal with the same problem like mine?💭

One day i decided i deserved to have more than what i was settling for...
it didn’t happen immediately though.
it was day by day, trusting my intuition...
deciding i wasn’t crazy for wanting more.
i stopped second guessing myself.
i stopped asking myself “why?” and i said “why not?”
i stopped thinking i wasn’t good enough...
i rejected the lie that i couldn’t do this!
i decided that i was worth god’s best.
and it was worth it to give him my best yes.
i don’t know if some of y’all have been where i’ve been but stop settling sis. i promise you, theres nothing beautiful on the other side. that person, that situation, that struggle is never going to change.
so you just have to be the bold one and say no to it so that you can give god room to bring you to your next yes. there’s better in store for you.
this is your sign to move on. 💕 #lovingthewomanwithin
