Let me talk to you a little bit about my journey.
When I met my ex, he said he was attracted to me by my curly hair. But slowly and surely, things started to change. His comments towards my clothing meant I started to change the way that I dressed.
When he cheated on me with an exotic dancer, I was absolutely devastated. I felt she was everything I wasn’t; beautiful, blonde hair, blue eyes, fake tan and fake boobs. My confidence and my self-esteem was massively affected. I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror, hated taking pictures of myself and I didn’t feel like what I had was enough and I didn’t blame him for cheating. The first time.
Reality is, I was unhappy for a long time. When I decided to leave the relationship, it was because I believed I had to love myself more and take a leap of faith in my ability to deliver the happiness I knew deep down that I deserved.
And so that’s what I did. Now look at these images. I haven’t had plastic surgery or changed my hair colour or even changed the amount of make up that I wear (well, lipstick). The difference is happiness. I’m happier now than I ever was. It shines from the inside out. That happy glow. And that’s why my selfies look so good.
