it has been a stressfull 2 weeks. emotionally i was all over the place with all the drama going on in my life. but i have walked away with a new sense of self worth and ability to walk away from those when disrespected.
Sometimes it's good to realize when it is time to take a step back, breathe in, breathe out, and refocus. fall is usually my "turnaround" season. a time to reflect on the changes i've made so far and those i'm still looking to make. a time to reevaluate the people in my life and the things i am doing. i want to always be the best version of myself and help others around me to do the same. that being said you can't always help others so focusing on you should be your priority. i say all this to say forgive my lack of presence as i take time to elevate to a better me. #refocus#theladyfromhr#tlhrva#virtualassistant#entrepreneur#fallbaby#gettingbacktome#elevate
After being in the united states of america for 8 years this day, i wanted to put this out there for anyone who has ever felt lost or depressed in a different country.. a couple things people don’t realize when you move to a new country... it’s f*****g lonely, you left all the best people in your life stranded on a different island, always wondering when/if your coming home,
it’s truly hard to make friends. you lack those memories and bonds, the relationships made from a child take years to develop. therefore, your always behind the 8 ball on this as friendships are already established, so you try to squeeze in but it’s always an uncomfortable squeeze.
you loose the friends that were once so darn close. it’s hard to keep up with the mates you had before, you love them, but life happens. you miss birthdays, weddings and births, your friends will always question why you went to your dads 60th over their baby shower.
you never fit in anywhere, again friendships are hard to slot into, people judge you for the way you speak, what you say and how you dress.
people really don’t listen or are not interested and certainly don’t appreciate the sacrifices made, and you will always be accused of being selfish. people don’t realize that the life you left behind was full filling and f*****g awesome, and the one you have now is not as awesome, but you keep trying anyway.
you simply don’t fit in anywhere anymore, you have changed in so many ways, you discover things about yourself that u never knew, you kicked old habits but such a huge chunk of your self is else where, and that piece is always missing wherever you go
you never know where home is. always back an forth from country to country, when your home you want to be away ,when your away, you want to be home.
you feel guilt all the time, about leaving people, about wasting time with people who don’t appreciate you, and for missing out on all the joys of your other life.
so..if you have a friend/ family member who is not from around your parts, take an interest in them, include them in conversation, because you honestly never know if that person is 100% happy in the life they choose. a simple txt to say hi what’s up,
2 selfies in a day? how dare she you might say... well this is the best i've felt in over a week so please just let me have it... tomorrow we're back to pictures of coffees and sweets i promise 💕 #alsoitssnowingoutsideandimkindofinlove
