I have struggled hardcore with speaking up for myself, speaking up for the things I believe in because there is almost always someone standing right there, waiting to tell me I’m wrong. I
There are 3 things that have really stuck with me lately…
This sent me on a mission.. how was I going to do this!? Is there a cheat sheet?
Eventually, after years of talking… I got really tired of talking. I was tired of recounting the horrors of my childhood to people who didn’t really try to hide the fact that they didn’t really care.
So.. I stopped talking. It was all fine and dandy at first but then I started to have stomach troubles and I started to have anxiety and bouts of depression.. I didn’t like the person I was becoming.
I wasn’t okay with how I was feeling so I made my mind up that I had to find a way to solve it for myself.
This was the beginning of a very long, rewarding journey that I’m still walking today, as I write this.
When I started down this path, I felt alone and like I was the biggest mistake to have ever graced this Earth.
Now, I know that I am here for a reason.. (you are too, by the way) and that my existence is on purpose. I have so much to offer this world… (you do too, by the way). It hasn’t been easy.
I’ve got a free Facebook community called “Defeated but ready to thrive 25+ women” where I am helping women just like myself, walk the path I’ve walked. In there I have a free program that walks you from feeling stuck to freedom. If you'd like, head over and join us... if you're not quite ready, no biggie.
Alrighty, so last week I talked about what hormone issues ARE so this week I’m going to break it down further and we’re going to talk about what CAUSES them.
I’m going to talk about 3 of the sources because if I took time to talk about every single one, this blog would go on forever and well.. I don’t have that kind of time and neither do you!
I knew that once a month I was supposed to have a period and that it was inconvenient and painful.
Yeah. True story.
What I’ve learned since then is that, the process is far more complex and irregular cycles is only one sign of a hormone imbalance.
If this is the path you’re walking right now, I completely understand how frustrated you can be when you know something isn’t right but you’re having a hard time finding the answers.
