just a real happy gal ✨ earlier this year you would’ve never caught me posting a picture like this! i was extremely insecure because i was struggling so so bad with hormonal acne. ☹️
i never would’ve left the house without makeup, let alone have my picture taken. y’all... i DREAMED and PRAYED for months to God to clear my acne so that i would be able to swim this summer without having anxiety about being seen.
it was one of the biggest struggles i’ve faced to date, and it was a tough season. i would cry every time i looked in the mirror. i felt like it would never get better. it eventually did, and i’m so thankful i found a solution. 🙏🏼
but wow, just wanted to say that. so often we get on social media and see these cool pictures of people in beautiful places and have no idea what’s really going on with their lives and what they are struggling with. this photo represents to me that i can get through even the hardest battles and come out on the other side smiling. whatever you are facing, it will come to pass too friends! you will become stronger and look back at what you’ve overcame and be in AWE! 😭✨
