These three things are soooo important and I hope that you don’t wait as long as me to achieve them. I spent most of my life not knowing who I was. I blended into whoever I was around. I craved acceptance from the people I put on the pedestal at the time. Boyfriends friends school mates older siblings whoever I looked up to. I never felt accepted and I definitely didn’t love myself. I spent my life a codependent putting everyone else above me. If only I did enough someone would love me enough. When I was 45, after attempting suicide I ended up in a mental facility where I was put on an anti depressant. Changed my life. I was diagnosed with severe depression. That was the moment I started to find who I was and I started to realize I was ok. I spent the next 3 years healing and learning who I was. And now at 49 I can say that I’m pretty amazing and I love myself. If you feel depressed don’t live with it and be lost. I promise you are amazing too.
