Something I’ve learned from this past year is what stress and your environment can do to your mental and physical health! I’ve spent these past few months trying to surround myself with positivity and spending time to myself when needed and trying my best to not overwork myself!
These past few weeks of school have been pretty brutal and I’ve been feeling super unmotivated and have been struggling to find the positivity around me, which (plus the 98 degree weather) has been causing my skin to flare up, continuing my loss of positivity and confidence!
But today, I decided to take a photo for funsie, which ended up being a wonderful reminder to me that I’ve made so much progress in both mental and physical health, and I got to keep pushing! Although certain areas of my body are still flared up, I’m beyond proud of the areas that have calmed!
So here’s a before and after from sometime a few months ago and now! (I apologize that it is decently graphic, so please don’t slide through the photos if you aren’t good with health conditions! 😢)
