Introducing My Inner Voice

I’ve gotten used to the voice in my head, the mean girl who tells me I’m not good enough. Not thin enough. Not smart enough. Not financially stable enough. Not pretty enough. Not feminine enough. Not enough. There has been a perpetual bar in… Continue Reading “Introducing My Inner Voice”
