Najat, why do you post so much on social media?
Well, because I remember what it was like to feel so incredibly lost. I didn’t know what to do with my life. I was so far gone on whatever fitness/eating plan I was attempting to conform to (because that’s what all the fitspo people were doing). I was consumed by an eating disorder and depression that I didn’t know how to get out of. I was working two jobs that I was incredibly overqualified for just to stay afloat. I subjected myself to what society said I needed to do and be. I was so stuck on being what everyone else wanted me to be. I became a girl I didn’t even know.
So, while yes, I am a very positive person, it took a hell of a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get here. I post in hopes to be a light in a dark tunnel that allows you to believe in yourself. I post so that you know you are not alone in your struggles. I post so that you know that you can overcome anything you set your mind to. I post so that you believe in your worth and in your story. I post so that you think, if she can do it, I can do it! You are not broken. You are not faulty. You are human and that is what make you unique. We all have struggles, we all have strengths, we all have stories. Embrace and love every single part of you, even the parts you want to change.
