“Feeling like Miles Morales” 🗣 Huge thanks to my fam @forever21men for the invite and the gifts! Also thank you Stan Lee 🙏🏾 for a awesome Movie 🍿 you will be missed.
⚠️THROWBACK⚠️ Let me tell y’all some background on this picture.
This was one of my first “blogging” photos from a little over a year ago when I first started. I took Jake home to meet my family in person (I’m from MD so I only go home once a year typically) and my sister is into photography so I bothered her to take some pictures for me.
When I look back at this picture now, I see tons of things that I’ve learned since this point. The shadows, the sunlight, the trash can in the back 😂. But I also love this picture because this was the first time I really felt like I was doing something for myself and I was so happy. I dress how I want now, because for some dumb reason I never used to feel like I could or should dress the way I really wanted to because it seemed like “too much”. Pfft girl, bye.
I’ve spent most of my life as a people pleaser and trying to be someone I thought others wanted me to be, or that I felt like I SHOULD be because being myself wasn’t enough. I was never comfortable in my own skin or happy because I wasn’t being me all the time. But when I started this blog, I finally decided to be who I wanted to be, regardless of what anyone thought. It was scary as hell, and still can be sometimes. But it’s so damn liberating I can’t even TELL YOU.
A big part of that is because when I started dating Jake it was the first time I ever felt like I could just be me and he’d love me as I am. I didn’t have to try to like what he liked or do things just because I thought he’d like that I did them. He let me be 100% me, and encourages me daily about loving me as I am and about chasing my blogging dreams. He’s even become obsessed with photography lately to make sure my photos turn out great!
So I wanted to remind everyone that it’s OK to be who you are, do what you’re comfortable with, and know you should never have to feel like you have to do something or act a certain way for people to like you. You find your real tribe by being your true, genuine self, and they will love and support you no matter what because they can relate to you. It won’t be for everyone, but the others don’t matter. Food for thought this Sunday! I hope you have a beautiful day ❤
