I have always been shy and quiet. When I met my first boyfriend, things got out of hand and I was forced to step out of my comfort zone constantly. Comments such as “You’re too shy, you’re impossible”, “I only date hot girls” or “You should dye your hair blonde, it’s sexier” were routine. Eventually, through the last moments of the relationship, I started to develop social anxiety and a very low self-esteem. These comments were branded to my brain with fire, and even years later, they still pop up in my mind. However, by working along with therapists and by spending time with those that I love the most, I have managed to learn to love and trust myself unconditionally
