When I first started this journey to self-love and body confidence, I was in my 2nd year of high school and the negative thoughts toward myself were getting too much. I was starting to get depressed and I needed a shift in my life and that's when I began to change my perspective. The first time I notice that I was making progress in this journey was when I was at my boyfriend at the time house and I was looking at myself in the mirror and for the first time ever, I didn't see anything bad about my body I was just feeling neutral about it like my body look fine. When I started blogging I was still insecure about myself because I never put myself out there and I was still in this phase where I cared about what people thought about me and I was so focused on school that I didn't blog as much as I should.
It wasn't until I was in my first year of college was when I started blogging again and it really helped me during the lowest moments of my life. as I became depressed in my second semester of college because of a sexual assault that happens to me. This situation changed my life and I didn't know how to handle it which result in the situation took over my life. It became so bad that I felt suicidal for over a year and if I didn't have the people in my life during the time where I was at my lowest I wouldn't be here today (and if your one of the people who help me during those times thank you). This point in my life was when I started Cocktails with Antoinette.
Everything change for me after doing my first event and how successful it was This made push myself to love everything I am and to continue help to females all over that they are beautiful just the way they are and that you can make it through anything. I guess you can say I came a long way and today I turn 20, and for the first time in a long time I can finally look myself in the mirror and say that I am beautiful and I am worthy of all the love I was giving. Then I realized for the first time in my life I fell in love with who I am, and it felt amazing.
