You’ve reached my mental health advocacy section. Here you’ll find my story, resources, other tribe members stories, motivation, and so much more. I’ve been working really hard on this and I wanted to bring it to you ASAP.
I’ve always struggled with mental health for as long as I can remember. I’ve been through different traumas since early childhood and healing from past to recent events has not been easy. It’s been a long journey full of healing, medications, tears, therapy, and repair. It’s been hard. I won’t lie. This isn’t easy for anyone and every persons struggle is not only their own but totally different. At age 16, I’d be through some crazy things and I wanted to end my life. Thankfully I didn’t. By age 20, I was highly medicated for severe depression, anxiety, stress issues, and PTSD. I never talked about my struggles. I held them in for years but as I got older, I opened up to a counselor. It helps I promise and if you’re on the fence, do it! If not a therapist then please grab a friend, family member, or message me!! Im more than happy to lend an ear. ❤️
Ok, Back to the story...
At age 21, I wanted to crash my car into anything just in hopes that it would take me too. That didn’t happen. I’m very thankful now. At age 22, it looked like I had the best life ever on the outside but inside, I was drowning. I was sad, hopeless, and lost. Turning to my therapist yet again gave me comfort and I was ok. At age 23, I tried to end it all but I was saved from it. Now, here I am. Age 30. Still going through heartbreak and trauma but I’m so much better. I’ve learned how to cope. I know how to deal with issues as they come and how to adjust. I still have my moments (we ALL do) but I’m alive. I’m better. I’m grateful for my life. Now I advocate for mental health because I want to help. Ive always loved helping people. I have a “helping heart” and helping with something I’ve struggled with so much has always been a dream of mine. I’ve been through it, y’all! I have felt it all I promise. I’m here for you and I want everyone to know just how special their life is. You’re all worth it. You’re beautiful, smart, and perfect. Let’s heal, grow, and thrive together as a family...a tribe! ❤️
I’ll have lots of resources and discussions available soon so please continue to check back! 😘
I love you all so much!
You can overcome this one day at a time.
