Finding My Style & Expression
 
After going through many phases and trying on different hats I'm finally finding my "style". It's so important to be able to look at myself in the mirror and say "I look great, and feel great" and know that the representation of what I see is authentic to who I am. For a long, long time I wasn't allowed to express myself in the way that I wanted because of my choice in religion. I couldn't wear the clothes I wanted to, or even wear makeup. I didn't even have my own opinions, I repeated what I was taught like a very good christian girl.

So I am finally finding my way to authentic self expression as I let go of the old limiting factors in my life. I'm still coming to terms with the fact that I can be whoever I want to be. That I can wear whatever I want to wear, simply because I like it. That I am entitled to my own opinions and beliefs and and that I have the right to express what is true for me.

*huge sigh of relief*

It's been a little over 3 years since I decided to leave church and change my life completely, to live on my own terms. And I'm finding my way.

Can anyone else relate to this? I'd love to chat about it.
