I am a young single mother. I’ve been through a lot of hard times that I came out of strong and confident. I’ve always prided myself in being able to allow myself to go through my emotions as needed (sad, happy, angry, confused, etc.) and then come out of them back into the motivated self I like to be. But lately I just cannot shake this very heavy feeling in my heart. It is so hard to get myself up in the morning, to get myself to join a gym, or to choose to eat healthy when in my head I know all the good things that could come with it. Four months ago I lost my aunt, who I deeply loved and admired, to cancer – and at the same time I lost my best friend over a misunderstanding. A year and a half earlier I lost my big brother’s company due to immigration issues – he was removed from the US. I want to feel better and follow my dreams of finishing college but it’s getting hard to drag my feet and make decisions and take action.
