Do you feel pressure to be perfect? How much of it is tied to what you see online?
When I was working to heal and make my body stronger, I realized that the only competition I truly had was with myself. I think that was when I realized I shouldn’t compare myself to others anymore. I am different, my body is different, my life is different, my life path is different… The only thing that mattered was to get better and to just live the best possible life that I could.
Yeah, sometimes, you can’t help but see things on TV or online and want, but I just remember how far I’ve come, what I’ve learned, and what’s important to me. In the end, I just want to be me.
