The beginning of my journey into crystals is a bit of a blur. That whole era of my life is. I was one of many who hit rock bottom in 2012 and became interested in alternative healing practices to alleviate the pain. I don't remember exactly when I first made my way into a crystal shop or what made me decide to even want to go in the first place, but I remember very clearly holding my first crystal in my hand.
Owning my voice and sharing my experience as a sensitive person has been monumental in my ability to accept myself. I no longer compare myself to other people or worry I'm not good enough. But it wasn't always this way. I spent the majority of my life feeling very insecure and unsure about who I was and what I wanted. True acceptance is at the heart of self-love and self-love is at the heart of a healthy, happy life, so here are a few things that have helped me grow into a person who knows herself, accepts herself, and is confident in her worth.
