“Be the love you never received” – Rune Lazuli.
As a kid, overcoming a toxic friendship which resulted in extremely low self-esteem was one of the most impactful moments in my life and still affects me to this day. My struggles from this experience included social exclusion, the loss of confidence, and the eventual journey towards self-discovery and growth. I eventually gained the strength to overcome the situation by seeking support from a trusted teacher. This shifted to a positive turning point in my life during university when a friend’s advice and encouragement sparked a significant change in me. I want my experience to show that life is a journey of self-discovery and growth. Even to this day, I struggle with these issues. As I share my experience with those reading, I encourage you to internalize the idea that you are enough. Take pride in your journey, celebrate your victories, and remember that no one else’s words can define your worth. You are a unique and irreplaceable individual, and the world is richer with you in it.
