Candice Burt, le texte de sa publication du 14-01-2019 22:21:00 :
It’s ok to be alone. Partners don’t complete us, they compliment what we already have going, be it good or bad. On the other end of the spectrum, those closest to us can help us keep negative patterns and addictions: we are always responsible first for our own mental health and where we are in life. No matter how bad a relationship is, if you are in it you are actively choosing it. Blame others all you like for your life but if only YOU can change it, then you can change who you live with, interact with and who you allow to influence your life. It’s taken me many years to surround myself with passionate, kind, and positive people. I had to change my own self, look at the things I didn’t want to look at about myself. Accept my addictions and let them go, before I could really see the people around me. I wrote a post in March 2018 about this topic, about being ok with being alone as I was going through a breakup from a long term relationship. There was a time in my life where I thought I needed a relationship to be complete, but I’ve never felt more complete than I do as a single woman who gets to do whatever the fuck she wants whenever she wants. So I began to look at my beliefs around what kind of life I really want to lead, rather than what kind of life I grew up believing we should all live. There’s a big disconnect between those two beliefs: society’s idea of a woman’s place and my own and what I really want. Rather than try to make my life fit around some societal ideal or the idea that women should be weak, submissive and small, I’ve stepped back and purposefully, thoughtfully decided what I actually want. Turns out that I have everything I ever really wanted and a trajectory that I’m excited about: three inspiring businesses, two wonderful children, vibrant community, amazing staff and volunteers for my races, a home, investments, and a body that can run so far I’m not sure where the trail will end or if anything is impossible. What more could a girl ask for? Ok yeah, pancakes for dinner of course because you know — I can eat whatever the fuck I want whenever I want. #girlpower #runnersofinstagram #trailsisters #runner #run #pancakes #peanutbutter

You told me I’m not
what a woman should look like
I’m too skinny
And the next day, too fat

I’ll let you tear me open
So I can feel the whole world
