This season of Teen Mom 2 has been a rough one for star Leah Messer as she has not only had to continue her custody battle with ex Corey Simms, but also juggle her relationship with Adalynn’s father Jeremy as well as dealing with the her daughter Ali’s medical issues. Making things worse is that every episode seems to include one instance of Leah being a “bad mom” — whether it’s texting and/or smoking while driving with the kids in the car or letting Adalynn eat from a can of icing.
Despite how things might appear on screen, Leah shared a very lengthy message with fans today in which she assures everyone that she is in a “beautiful place” now, thanks in large part to a stronger relationship with God, as well as the help of her life coach Lindsay.
Leah makes sure to head off superficial criticism of what she has to say by prefacing her comments with “Pay My Grammar NO MIND- Just simply give me time.” She adds the hash tags #Patience and #GettingBETTEReveryday as well as the ☺️? emoji.
Here is the rest of what Leah said, with a few minor edits here and there, beginning with the “I’m not a nun, I’m a mom” photo that she also shared:
This is actually the first time I’ve said much about me or my life because you see me on TV or hear BS Teen Mom/Small Town Gossipers. But you will realize how I proudly choose to be above all the BS w/ any of it. Mainly because I know God has a greater plan for myself! What everyone automatically wants to pass judgement, lie, and/or assume about myself or Journey really doesn’t even matter. As long as God knows my ❤️. At the end of the day, HIS judgement is what truly matters!
Any how, back to the picture quote I reposted..
It is so true! I prefer to be a classy mom!(: I loveee loveeeeee my tattoos. Matter of fact, Each one has a special meaning behind them. Example: My daughters names. They are all professionally done. I also like being able to cover them when need be during interviews, public speakings, etc.
The point in posting this is …. Drum rolls. Haha…. We as “MOMS” don’t have to live by someone else’s criteria. We should however live up to our own criteria. Who and what we wanna be and achieve! You have to …. Live up to your own standard!!! We have to create our own journey. Be DIFFERENT and EMBRACE whatever we go through. I’ve learned so many things in the past year that has turned my life completely around for the best! The top 3 things that I have learned that I plan helping others learn would have to be these…
1. How to maintain and grow a magnificent relationship with God. I’ve found a different growth in my relationships with him like NEVER before. It’s truly inspirational and amazing! I’m in love?
2. Taking time to just LIVE IN EACH AND EVERY MOMENT/DAY/SECOND of my life with my beautiful little girls. That are of course the best things that’s ever happened to me! #ExtremelyBlessed #AAA #HOPE #GRACE #FAITH !????????☺️
I only THOUGHT my relationship with my daughters was quite remarkable before. The relationship I have with my girls now is quite magical and amazing to feel!
3. I’ve learned How to take care of myself: MENTALLY PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY & by having a Life coach like Lindsay Rielly through the @liveyourstandard program has been the best experience of my life and has completely changed my life. God KNEW what he was doing when he brought YOU into my life, and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for our future! You’re more than my manager, and Friend! You have already taught me so much and how to love myself, be the best of myself, be a better mother, and most importantly that everything you have taught me is teaching me to be a Beautiful, Classy, successful, and empowering woman. In return I will teach my daughters as well as others! You with the help of God have opened my eyes to what I want, need, and where one day I will be.☺️❤️ As a child I was never taught this and when my mom was a child she was never taught this. My personal experience was totally opposite. I put everyone and everything before myself. This is also why in some ways I am GRATEFUL for MTV through all of their BS, and I’ve never said that its ALL bs. MTV does get real sh!t, and then they have to twist sh!t or whatever they do. We all know it happens and it’s going to happen. I know it will get better, and I can’t wait for everyone that does follow my story and can see through whatever editing is done to see what a beautiful place I am in now, and that God walked me through some pretty difficult times for a very good reason! So I do have a somewhat Bitter/Sweet relationship with some of them. It would actually be kinda hard living any other life now.
I LOVE my crew Amy Rhodin, Lindsey Cast, Kevin Rosko, America Maldonado, Amy Bonezzi, Morgan Freeman and there’s noo way I can forget my ALL TIME FAV …Kassie Thornton I LOVE && MISS YOU SO MUCH BOO !??
And of course there’s more. These guys have been so much more of an enlightenment in my life! You guys have all played a important roll to my success and I appreciate you guys!
I also just want to THANK everyone that DID support me and rooted for me! We need more people just like you in this world! #BeYourBest #LoveYourself #LiveYourStandard #LetsChangeTheWorld #LetsMakeADifference Victoria Jones Dawn Spears Brian Jones Sandy Kay && the rest of my familia and all my fans!. #TeAmo☺️
