    Forgiving Myself

    Dear self,

    I forgive you for your perfectionism. Despite the pressure growing up on fixing all mistakes, you've realized the unhealthy pursuit perfectionism is. I'm excited to see you keep growing!

    Acceptance of your Whole Self 🌺

    Acceptance of one’s whole self is seemingly difficult these days. The criticism and scepticism that people face from others on a daily basis is scary, unbelievable and daunting. I think what makes these feelings of judgement and worthlessness worse are the thoughts that we believe them to be true. These self-doubts can become debilitating at times. When these feelings and beliefs arise, I have a look at the passage below. It speaks of acceptance of one’s self. Self acceptance is vital in these times we live in. We rely on it to heal from our past to ensure we understand how to better our actions/ reactions in the future. Be patient in this process and know you are trying your best every day to simply be better than the day before. Accept the good and bad parts of yourself. Never condoning, nor judging, the side that requires the most growth. That’s all you can do. You are worth your own love 🌻🌻🌻

    I just need to vent about my sad feelings #MentalHealth #Depression #PTSD #PersonalGrowth

    I am so heartbroken. But, I am keeping my cool and trying to be happy for myself.
    So, I am in the process of self-publishing a new book. And I no longer have a supportive author platform. I used to have a author page on Facebook which had about 2k followers. I was pretty proud of that. Then there were some awesome supporters on my personal Facebook account. They purchased my books, posted photos with their feedback and it made my heart swell.

    Unfortunately, awhile back. I lost my Facebook account due to it being hacked. And instead of trying to start all over with building a following I decided to just commit to using Twitter. Because I felt like since I already had 3k followers there it should be easy to find and connect with new readers. But, right now it is just me being swallowed into the void. My tweets aren’t being seen. Maybe it’s because a bunch of my followers are other indie and self-pub authors. I don’t know.

    But, I do occasionally try and post and self promo my book releases on Snapchat. It is just so mind blowing that no one acknowledges it. With a congrats or anything. Especially when majority of people on Snapchat are either your family or friends. Like, woah wow. Okay. Lol!

    Like, I wish I could just leave social media completely alone but, if my dream is to be a full time author I’ve gotta have a social media presence. I am so sad and frustrated about this situation.

    My new book is available for preorder on amazon. Search the title: Lipsody

    And if you’ll love to show support please connect with me on Twitter at @jalissacarter

    I would appreciate it so much. I am just tired of not being seen. My author life was going so well in 2017 lol.
    But, 2022 not so much. x

    It could be because of current events?
    I know that life isn’t as it used to be for all of us.

    I pray that all of us who are hurting inside begin our healing soon.

    Thank you for reading. #Life #MightyQuestions

    My story has had it's ups and down in life. There's pages that I've ripped out that I refuse to read. But there comes a time where I have to force myself to look back on things that have happened that have more or less shaped how I am today. It's ugly, it's painful like no other, and most of the time I just break down and cry letting myself go back to the time in my life where events occured that changed everything in an instance. But allowing myself to feel and to look back and take a hard look at things and where I'm at now and who I want to be, it's the only way that I can finally move forward and allow myself to heal those hurts that I've allowed to dictate my life. Last night my anxiety was horrendous and I had a few panic attacks and I'm still feeling the effects from that today. But I know it's all part of the process. So here's to trying my damnedest to break down those walls that I've built so high and thick.

    Growth vs. Safety

    “In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety”. -Abraham Maslow

    My book has hit the streets #Depression #MentalHealth #PTSD #Relationships #Hope #Anxiety #PersonalGrowth

    Orders are flooding in for the children’s book I have published. Already I have been able to send 1k to the orphanage in Indonesia. It’s been a really scary thing putting myself out there but risk is ok.


    Inspiring music

    What is your strong (person) song, or overcoming song that gives you strength what songs do you turn to to cheer you up. Trying to put together a playlist. I love all genres, and generations like oldies. #PersonalGrowth
