  1. Hi there !
    I’ve kind of been going through something similar and I love the fact that you stated your never alone. It’s absolutely true, even though when your in your bubble that’s all you think is that your the only one. I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your story with the world ❤️

      Thank you, Amber! It is true – feeling like you’re not alone can be really comforting. That’s what I hope to do with this blog, so this comment means so much to me! Wishing you health & happiness <3

  2. I absolutely love your site and am happily repinning your content. Every post is inspirational and so, so on point. Recovery is such a learning process and it takes so much introspection. Accepting yourself for who you are, as being good enough and believing you can make a difference. It’s a long and sometimes lonely road, and burnout is common because we work so hard.

    1. Thanks so much, Shar! Yes, self-acceptance is a life-long journey and a definite learning process, but it is all so worth it! Thanks again for your kind words <3

  3. I LOVE that I stumbled upon this post! I am in the thick of it right now and your post has given me hope that things CAN be different. I would love to hear more about the steps you took to unpacking all the added baggage of life 🙏🏻

      Thank you so much, Melissa! Yes, there is hope. And yes, things can and will be different. I’m no expert, and I still have my tough days. What has helped me the most is making my wellness a priority and building my self-love. Learning that I too needed care, and there was no reason to feel guilty about it.

      Learning about burnout also really helped because I was able to recognize what I was feeling, and it gave me the confidence to seek help. I realized that no, I wasn’t just being overly sensitive or weak, my struggle was real, and I was worthy of getting better.

      Regularly checking in with myself really helped because it taught me to acknowledge when I needed a break and to seek support when I needed it.

      Journaling has also helped me better understand myself, and the more I learned about myself, the better I became at avoiding the things that triggered my lows and embracing the things that helped me cope and fed my soul.

      Counselling is also a helpful way to unpack past experiences.

      Anything that leads you to focus on your wellness and self-care is the right thing for you. I wish you all the best. We’re in this together, my friend! ♡
