Brave, Beautiful and Baring it All: Opening Our Hearts to Happiness No Matter What Life Throws At Us Extract from Book

I first started my online journey when I was in deep post-natal depression (not that you would see that behind these photos or videos). No one saw that I had attempted suicide either it was just another day of a girl posting. After that moment I felt a need to express myself authentically the good, the challenge & truth of me. Why? I didn’t want anyone else to feel as lonely, unhappy & unworthy as I did. My hope was that when people would see other people, like myself (an ordinary girl), baring their all with honesty/vulnerability, showing her struggles that it might make it easier for them to reach out for help & support too. Its been fucking hard & I can’t tell you how many times people opinions / judgments have shattered me, shocked me in their lack of compassion (all walks of life strangers, family, friends, even a community of souls I turned to for their compassion yogis, health &fitness/motivation experts). It feels uncomfortable & extremely vulnerable to lay bare our innermost selves in a public way as we are programmed to worry about what others may think and whether or not they will still love/accept us once they know what we perceive to be our vulnerabilities/weaknesses. I also can’t tell you how grateful I am for all those that have supported me in my journey. Some I have never met & I take my hat off to all you epic souls who are out there being your true, authentic selves, chasing your dreams, owning your failures, trying new things, getting out of your comfort zone, taking responsibility for being the change you wish to see in the world while celebrating others rather than looking at them as competition or judgment/shame. You are the people who make the difference. Please never believe anyone who tells you that you’re not enough. If you ever feel like you’re struggling, remember that somewhere in this world there is a girl called Rhy (that’s me!) – and that this girl supports you & loves you just as you are, in all your bravery,
in all your beauty and even when you “bare it all” – in fact, especially when you “bare it all”! Extract from my book link in bio coming Jan 2020
