At some point in my life (but very early on) I decided that I wasn’t ‘enough’ of anything. I wasn’t pretty enough, smart enough, slim enough, creative enough, likeable enough, able enough. These thoughts plagued me throughout my life, taking me down paths I shouldn’t have been on, leading me away from all of the things I’d ever wanted.
When I was 21 I woke up one day and decided that I was enough for me. That was all it took for me to change my life. I have made progress in the last few years that the younger me would not believe – I work with the public, I manage a team of people, I am surrounded by loved ones who appreciate me! How fantastic is that? All it took was a little self-esteem.
I support this project proudly because I know how destructive low self-esteem can be. I know how powerful it can be to make people feel good about themselves (this is why I take photographs!). I wear my self-esTEEm shirt proudly, and confidently tell anyone who wishes to know about it what it means, and how they can join the cause.
Remember, you are amazing!
