I'm really proud of myself for going through with it....because it gives me my life back. That's the reason for doing it.

I find so much more joy in being authentic and not having that double life. It's tough having that vulnerability but in the end it's so much better
Looking back and thinking what the lowest of the low felt like and knowing that 'I don't want to go back and this is how I move forward' - that's how I get back on track.
