10 years ago, I started my Self Love journey.
I started my journey because I felt lost. I had emotions I had locked and buried deep inside myself for years, and no longer knew who I was. There were so many parts of myself I didn't understand. I never allowed myself to cry with the fear of being labeled as weak while my Caribbean culture praised me for holding
the Strong Black Woman trope with pride.
I didn't allow myself to explore my own emotions,
and as I developed anxiety, I forced myself to suffer in silence. Any trauma I experienced was pushed under the rug to hold on to a trope that no longer served me. 10 years ago, I realized
I had been coping, not healing.
I started journaling to heal the parts of myself I had silenced for all these years.
I realized Self Love is more than face masks and bubble baths. If I wanted to see real change in my life and truly heal, I needed to do the internal work. I realized there is a gap between Self Love & Mental Health
I created this journal for you SIS!
Over the last 10 years, I've used my Self- Guided Therapy journaling prompts and techniques to heal on my Self Love Journey. I created this journal to share all the prompts that guided me on my journey to
guide you through yours.
