It’s hard being a people pleaser and it’s a hard journey to figure out what’s best for you and do what makes you happy even though you want someone in terms of a relationship and love. I’m proud that I have been able to figure out what I need from someone, and what I need to do in order for me to be happy and successful. So that’s why I’m here today –  just for myself.

What are some of the steps that you’ve taken towards self care?

It takes time right. So I like just hanging out with my girlies, going to parties and having fun even though I have hella homework on the weekends. I still want to let loose. I mean, we’re young, we need to have fun. 

Can you kind of explain why self love is important and why you don’t really necessarily need to rush being in a relationship.

If you don’t love yourself, you can’t love anyone else. So, if you can’t figure out your problems and your trauma, you’re going to unleash that onto someone else. Your problems, your past trauma, creates more problems for you that you need to figure out. You don’t want to put that on someone else. So you got to love yourself and love your pain.
