The last time I willingly wore this romper was over a year ago, so today was a huge moment for me. The last time I wore this I was at my happiest and had just completed #ThriveMovement
, alongside some of the most amazing and very inspiring QUEENS. For some of us, life happened after it ended; babies were made, engagements, promotions, losing jobs, losing loved ones or lovers... you know, all that fun stuff life occasionally throws your way. I personally experienced a lot of blows mental health wise. My anxiety and depression has been rearing it’s ugly head for a few months now and I’ve definitely spent many nights crying myself to sleep. As most of you saw, @only1ovy
rescued a sweet pitbull puppy a couple of weeks ago and we both had the honor of keeping him until we found his family. Which I can happily update everyone, he’s VERY happy and exactly where he belongs. That sweet boy though, lemme tell you, was the light at the end of the dark tunnel I had been traveling on. I’m gonna share something with y’all that I honestly didn’t want to but feel like I need to because I’m sure somewhere out there, there is someone who can relate. About three days after Chris initially brought him home, I had a breakdown. I cried for almost 18 hours straight and was in the darkest headspace I had been in in a while. I had written out a goodbye note to my family and friends and tried to hurt myself. I got scared though, stepped back and called Chris, begged him to come get me because no one was home. I knew if I had stayed home all alone, I would no doubt have tried again and succeeded. Chris came and got me and for the next week I got to dog-sit “Mr. Pibbz” and I completely fell in love with him. I’m having a hard time now that he’s gone, I miss seeing his sweet little face and how excited he’d get to see me or Chris but I learned a lot from him. I know he was “just a dog” but please don’t discredit him because of that, he was so much more! He was an angel sent to save me from making the biggest mistake. He was a lost puppy, just like I was a lost human but because of the love he showed me and the path he travelled that lead him to me, I know I WILL be okay.
