I guess this is my truth video (if that makes sense ). I lied to everyone and said I’ve been “fine” or “living my best life”. I was depressed for about 8 months and it was absolutely the most painful thing I’ve ever been through. I distanced myself from loved ones and blamed others for my emotions. I dwelled on the past for a long time, longing for the people who’ve been escorted out of my life. I was so thankful to take part in events because it would keep my mind off of what I was feeling.
My dark marks really affected me the past few months. Usually, I don’t let them define me, but I started hiding behind them. I hated them. I felt disgusted when someone looked at me and felt disgusted with myself.
It’s December 6th, 2019 and I’m deciding to move on. To move on from the people who don’t love me. Move on to Godly things. Success, self-love, spiritual growth, love, self-care, joy. I’m right here. I am me.
I am proud to be me. Toni Bryant, a beacon of light and hope. A True Queen.
