My True Story #No36
“So I was looking through my pictures recently and I found three pictures that stood out the most to me. I thought I would share this to try and help at least one person if I can..” - Lisa
“I dont want a pity party nor do I need it. In the first photo, my world had come crashing down. Several things had happened to me which had caused me to have a breakdown. It was a catalogue of events; family members ill health, my own ill health, amongst other contributing factors. Those closest to me have always said my eyes reveal things that I refuse to admit...
In that first photograph, I don’t know who I am, but I am not me.
The pain and hurt in my eyes is extremely noticeable. I was not myself. I am not ashamed to admit that I did not want to be around anymore.
I felt ashamed of the person I was, the pain I felt was unreal. But I pushed through and I fought a battle I never thought that I would have to fight.
The second photo was were I had made the decision to return to work, after 3/4 months. I was still unsure if it was the right thing to do, still continuing to fight a battle I had never envisioned I would have to endure.
But again I pushed through & I finally got to the third photo. I was feeling like me again - I felt happy, content & confident.
I still continue to fight my ill health, and a battle with my own thoughts and emotions. However if you would of told that girl in the first picture there would be a light at the end of the tunnel she would never of believed you.
I am so proud of myself to of overcome obstacles I never thought I would of. I still am not fully back to the girl I was before these events and I don’t think I ever will be, but I'm healing and growing.
When you hit rock bottom there is only one way up. ☺️“ True story told by Lisa, @lisacarolox
