Hey, love, I’m Angel Janelle! It has always been my dream and passion to help women reach their true potential by making peace with their past to become the best version of themselves. This passion was birthed from the hurt and pain I’ve experienced in my own life.
I recently realized a hard truth–I was holding myself back from reaching my true potential because I was still holding on to things from my past. Until the age of three, my brother and I lived with my mother, who was addicted to drugs, and as a result, we were placed in foster care until I was nine, then we were adopted. Somewhere along the way, I developed a self-loathing attitude that negatively impacted every area of my life. For pretty much my whole life, I have struggled with depression, low-self esteem, and loving myself. It took me until now to realize that I am deserving of love and that my self-worth was not tied to something outside of myself.
So, I am learning to live my life unapologetically, accept myself as I am, love myself unconditionally, and rediscovering myself. I am loving all aspects of this process (even the ugly)! I started this blog as a creative channel to inspire others, who also struggle with finding peace with their past. I love this quote:
“Wounds don’t heal the way you want them to, they heal the way they need to. It takes time for the wounds to fade into scars. It takes time for the process of healing to take place. Give yourself that time. Give yourself that grace. Be gentle with your wounds. Be gentle with your heart. You deserve to heal.” -Dele Olanubi
