So how hard did ageing hit me? This 1st picture was me in 2009 at 30 Exactly 10 years ago. Physically I think I looked beautiful but inside was a build up of fear, sadness, confusion and a loss of self. I was skinny and weak. Confidence with a layer of self doubt blocking me. Depressed , miserable and angry trying to figure out how to be happy and make things better. But didn’t know how. • Swipe…. now 2019 version of me. I still think I’m beautiful but now I glow from the inside out. I had to change my life drastically and went through a period of brokenness but the glow up was all worth it. I got into fitness which absolutely changed my life, I’m heavier but I’m fit and strong. My dedication to mental health and self love was unreal and My Confidence is viewed as conceited but I don’t care. I worked hard to fall in love myself and get my mental state right and I’m not sorry that makes some uncomfortable. I’m not perfect but I accept my flaws and work hard to do better everyday. I’ve learned to create happiness within me so I have enough love to give back to those around me. I’ve found myself, I’m driven, determined and ready to use my trials to give hope to those who need it.

VJ and host Andi Manzano, on the other hand, shared throwback photos from when she started her stint on radio and MTV.
“Since everyone is doing the #HowDidAgingHitYou, went through some old photos. Cringe,” Manzano captioned one of her Instagram stories. /muf
