“Depression is like searching for something you know you’ve lost, but you don’t have a clue what it is”.⠀
The reverse of depression is happiness. Many of us are finding ourselves depressed because we’re searching for happiness without even realizing we’ve lost it.
I’ve found myself describing this “journey” I’ve been on to a lot of people lately. At first I had no idea what the f*ck I was even telling people. I just knew it felt like I was changing in a way I didn’t recognize & it felt incredible. I wanted to share because I wanted others to feel this indescribable feeling too. I still do.⠀
The hardest part in sharing has been admitting to the lows. The mistakes. The really hard lessons. It’s not pretty to air your dirty laundry in front of everyone, but it’s part of my story, & I’m a huge believer in owning who you are 100%.
I felt embarrassed when someone close would say to me- “Paige, it’s amazing what you’re sharing on social media & I love how honest you are, BUT maybe don’t talk about the sad stuff so much.” It was embarrassing because it was REAL. I really felt that low. A lot.⠀
I still have my moments, but I am finding them to be so few & far between these days. They’re also getting easier to manage.
I’m happy to say that I am proud of the woman I have become because I know what it’s taken to become her. And I own allll of it. Even the tough stuff. 💪🏼⠀
I feel so strongly about sharing the bad just as much as the good even if there are times the two are not always balanced.
This “journey” is something I thought was new, but really, it’s a journey I’ve been on my whole life- searching for my way to happiness. I knew it was there, I just had to find my way back to it. ⠀
So many beautiful souls have presented themselves into my life, sharing their struggles & why they can relate. I LOVE hearing your stories because they help me find solace in my own, & I only hope to bring the same comfort to someone else.
Thank you for your encouraging messages on Instagram & Facebook, your feedback in person, & your genuine support of offering me a place to share so much vulnerability.💕
Parade and BBQ or sneak off to the mountains somewhere to find a body of water.... hmmmm 🤔 How are you spending your 4th of July??⠀
Snapped this on our sunset walk the other night 💕 Poor Echo came home with 8 million prickly stickers in her fur and it took me 45 minutes to get them out 😩😅 Always an adventure with her!⠀
[Werbung] Hallo ihr Lieben,
wie vielleicht einige in unserer Story schon gesehen haben, ist in den letzten Tagen ein kleines Päckchen von @landgrafuhren bei uns angekommen. In diesem Päckchen befand sich eine Uhr von der Mesh Collection, nämlich die „Paris Edition Limited“😍 Da ich sowieso total auf roségold stehe, ist mir diese Uhr mit dem roségoldenen Champagnerglanz und dem schwarzen Ziffernblatt sofort ins Auge gestochen. 😊 Durch die individuelle Einstellung der Armbandgröße lässt sich die Uhr an jedem Arm perfekt anpassen. 👍🏼 Wahrscheinlich habt ihr schon rausgehört, dass wir total begeistert sind 🙈😅 Also schaut auch unbedingt mal vorbei und mit dem Code Aussie_selfie10 bekommt ihr 10% Rabatt auf eure Bestellung 😱😍 #dog#hund#photo#photos#Foto#Fotoideen#photografie#bestwoof#animal#aussie#australiansheperds#australiansheperd#aussiephotos#aussiedog#pet#pets#cute#animals#werbung
