#THISISMYSTORY #LOVENAILTREE #CONTEST

My story begins with a break. My parents get divorced when I was 16, it was really painful and distressing, however,I tried to stay strong for my little sister takes better the divorce.

You can imagine at that age my life was complete a chaos, dealing with studies , discovering new things, changes in my body and of course... boys.

It was a difficult time. I was not what can be considered a model (even today still is not) but my friends were all beautiful, were tall, thin, had beautiful hair and a perfect smile,… not that I was a bug but I was unable to see that I was good as them.

He came without tell anyone, over the Internet. The talks began with lost minutes in the evening but immediately turned to hours and hours on the phone, I was completely hooked and it was no surprise, 'cause his words were always sweet and friendly, he made me feel so good... So we decided to meet in person and then started dating, can not remember at what point things began to change. He turned stubborn, arrogant, selfish and egotistical was truly...

Between age and my confusing feelings I did not see the reality. People said to me, "You should left him" but even if part of me knew that was true I had a terrible fear of being alone.

It had turned everyone around me, my family, my friends... There was nobody around me... The truth is that even that was not true, for every day that passed made me realize that this was not love, dependence was complete 24 hours a day.

There was not a single moment that we were not talking... I left my studies and... I repeated the course. I decided I should start from zero when it happened , my mistake was to continue with the relationship.

When I turned 18 something changed in me. I met new people in class, wonderful people who little by little became friends, hung out with them in the evenings, stayed all night and you can imagine why, it did not seem right. It was obvious because now I'm no longer paying much attention to him as before, it was clear he did not want to lose everything and one day in a discussion... He lost control. He hit me and I can say proudly that was the only time he did it, because from what I could discover many of the things he hid me, all lies and strategies to only be with him, I was isolated from the world, down to me self-esteem, made me hate myself more than I already did and I thought no one would love me more than him. What was wrong.

I remembered a quote I had read long ago "To love someone you have to love yourself first."

I left him, love me more and I promised myself not let anything or anyone tell me I could not do something. I noticed some goals and gradually I see that I achieved.

Today, four years after the storm of my past, I am in a beautiful, healthy relationship with a guy who supports me, what I do and I really want (just like me to it) I have started college and things are going to take a normal course.

My next goal? To continue with the blog that I created recently and discover many more things about the world of fashion that is what excites me now and of course try to win more confidence to get all my dreams.

The most important of this story is that you have always remember who you are, what you care and what does it take to get your goals even if everybody says you can’t do it. Live the life you love and love the life you live.
