In my early twenties, I experienced domestic violence, depression, losing everything, and feeling like that was it for life. Many years of my life were filled with hurt, struggle, loss, and confusion. Before I was even 25 my entire outlook on life had changed, and not in a good way.
No One to Turn To
I was at my lowest point in life and didn't have anyone to turn to. The same people I called friends didn't care, I couldn't turn to them. They were too busy living their lives and telling me how this would have never happened to them instead of supporting me and being a friend.
My family didn't understand either. Everyone was so critical of me, not even knowing half of what I'd been through. Everyone was so eager to offer their opinion, but no support.
I was broken. I picked up each individual, broken piece of me, my heart, mind, confidence, beauty, value, self-esteem, faith, will-power and all the other pieces that were damaged and began putting them back together again.
Am I Happy with Myself?
So when someone asks if I am happy with who I am I proudly say H.Y.F.R. (hell yeah, f****n right I'm a big fan of Drake). I didn't have to be here. In fact I attempted suicide, yet I survived. I know that me being alive, happy and healthy is a blessing and a miracle.
I was able to learn to live life again from a place of happiness and love. I don't have room for negativity in my life. I lived without being alive for so long that I refuse to allow anything or anyone to knock me off my course.
I am here for a reason, and I am here because I learned to love myself and live my life with purpose, in spite of all that I've been through. I love all the things about me that other people don't like, judge, or demean me for.
Being comfortable in my skin (physically and mentally), knowing my worth, and that I have the power do anything gives me such pleasure.
My Struggle is My Purpose
I see all the ways that I have grown and that alone makes me happy to be who I am. The things that tried to break me are what made me and led me to self-discovery, purpose, and love.
All the things I experienced are what push me to help others as a Spiritual Healer and Guide. I was able to change my life by focusing on Positive Forward Movement™ and being the embodiment of Spiritual Love and want to help others do the same.
