๐Ÿ’“Here are some comparisons:

*Everyone else has a better car

*Everyone has a better marriage

*All my friends are well off

*My neighbor house is bigger

*Most women are prettier than me

I totally get it. I did it too โ€“ but (thankfully) not as often as I once did.

๐Ÿ’“We are slaves to comparison and that’s not good, remember what you see on the internet is not their real life….let me say that again, โ€what you see on the internet is not their real lifeโ€!!!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ

๐Ÿ’“ Consider what we already know

Until we learn to celebrate + adore ourselves wholly for exactly the way we are today, in this package, at this weight, mascara streaked tears, with a manicure that is 10 days past due and looming grey hairs, we will never love another. Because when you believe you are enough, you stop screaming + start listening; youโ€™re kinder and gentler to yourself + kinder and gentler to others.

Life Empowerment Mentor


Published by Olivia B. Shepherd

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. Iโ€™m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future. Look forward to having you read my blog, ๐“ž๐“ต๐“ฒ๐“ฟ๐“ฒ๐“ช ๐“‘. ๐“ข๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“น๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ญ ๐Ÿ’‹
