That was really good, Alisha, thank you!
Whilst reading that, I realised that I am a lot like Alisha's 13-yr-old self. Since I was 13 (which was only like a year and a half ago...) I feel like I have backtracked so much, almost like I slammed the brakes on and began to reverse, quite quickly. The last few months I have basically turned around and began driving the other way, face-first, not even reversing.
But reading Alisha's writing, I realised that Alisha isn't that girl any more, which means one day I might not be how or who I am today.... which makes me kinda relieved!
Again, thanks Alisha, I actually really needed that!
Love ya all! xx

You are so welcome! While it feels like only a year and a half ago since I was thirteen, it has been a bit longer. The changes don't happen over night. You have to fight for them, insist upon them. I won't lie, it was one of the hardest things I've ever done, and continue to do.
Just because I'm an adult now or just because I wrote this piece doesn't mean I have it all together. I wish! Every day is still a struggle. Its still so hard to get up in the morning and choose to love yourself and accept the love from others to you. There is still a part of me that is and always will be that thirteen year old girl. I'm learning to be ok with that. But while a part of me is still thirteen, there is also the new part I was talking about who is learning all these great things.
I hope you find someone who shows you this in a real way like I did. And if you ever want to talk, about this or anything, feel free to get my email from Nancy or Crystal.

Thank you for sharing, Alisha. Your story is beautiful and I'm glad I got to read it.
