Breaking News! I am no longer in a relationship.

Since last October I had been with a guy that I truly loved and enjoyed being with. However, the relationship put a big toll on my self esteem and my self confidence. I won't go into specifics, but in a relationship you need your partner to help and encourage you to blossom and grow. I didn't have that. So I took a deep breath and thought long and hard about what I needed to do. And that was focus on me.

I talked to my therapist, my mother, my closest friends but in the end it came down to what I needed and what I believed needed to be done. I have never put myself first in my life. I am one of those ladies that give all of themselves in a relationship. I try my best to make the other person happy while sacrificing my own happiness. I don't want to live like that. I deserve happiness.

So that is where I am at in life. I am focusing on me and taking care of my self and that isn't being selfish. It is self love.
