You are OK. I am OK.

  Today was a day where I struggled. It was a day where I would rather not admit how many times I cried because my pants felt too tight. I have sensory issues and I really struggle when clothes don't "feel right" (hence a huge reason I work so hard to carry pieces that feel good, because that is all I can stand wearing). When clothes don't "feel right", I automatically go into a negative self-talk wheel. It's frightening how automatic it is. Logic has nothing to do with it. It doesn't matter what anyone says, because I can feel the way things are fitting and I cannot stand it. And it's enough to make me cry. It's not easy for me to talk about...the sensory issues, the digestive problems, the way they always lead into such negative self-talk, but my goal is to be REAL. And in sharing with you all, I want you to know that it is OK to cry. It is OK to not feel like yourself some days, to cry because even though you can't explain it something on your body doesn't feel right. You don't have to explain yourself. I get it. I totally get it. And you're not alone. We're never alone. You ladies get it and I thank you for getting it and creating this safe place with us to share these days. The good and the bad. The days where you feel like a total badass and the days where you cry because your pants are "all wrong". You're free to be you. That is what our mission is here...come as you are and lean into one another. We're all here for each other. And bottom line...you are OK. I am OK.#sensoryissues
