My outer appearance was my biggest downfall and it impacted the way that I saw the world. The world worshipped young women who were skinny, had a flat stomach, and had a gorgeous face. That was the ideal appearance and I felt like that's what I needed to accomplish. I went about it in the wrong ways by not eating, and thinking well maybe being anorexic isn't such a bad idea. That's when it lead to suicidal thoughts and that put me in a very dark place in life. As I continue to grow within my own body I've started to accept it and just to look in the mirror and say to myself "I am beautiful and wonderfully made."
My experiences now have led to me becoming very open-minded about different aspects in life. Having an open-mind helped me to continuously gain knowledge of things I never knew. It helped me view the world as a place full of different people with different point of views and that it is ok to just be different. When people are not open to receive new knowledge, new perspectives, and different outlooks on life they tend to become complacent. I knew for myself I would never be comfortable with where I am at, I want to be able to learn and gain as much knowledge as this world is willing to offer even if I don't agree.
Defining the different aspects of myself is still in working progress because I'm still growing and figuring myself out. I know for a fact that I have developed into an open person and that makes me feel more diverse in this world. I feel as though I am a very determined, selfless, and passionate human being. I say determined because when I want to do something and there is a challenge that follows it I will work harder to accomplish whatever my heart is desiring. Being selfless describes me always wanting to help others that are less fortunate than I was or went through the same challenges as I did. I say that I am passionate because everything I do, have done, or will do it always comes with passion.
I embrace my spirituality by just meditating getting connected with myself and praying to God for guidance in every decision that I make. Although I identify as a Christian I haven't gotten to a place where I am very religious and active within a church. As far as ancestry I want to be remembered for something that's huge to reflect on my family in a positive way despite of all the negativity that we have gone through.
