ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I am a mother of four, a grandmother, and a mental health advocate on a personal development journey that has transformed my life over the past five years. Through this journey, I have gained a deeper understanding of how our mindset and subconscious shape our lives.
Despite always maintaining a positive outlook and encouraging my family and children to do the same, I was caught unaware two years ago when my youngest daughter revealed her struggle with depression and mental health issues. She had always appeared to be so happy, and we were fortunate to have a strong family structure and a loving home environment. I quickly learned that even those with such advantages can be afflicted by depression.
Her battle with mental health has taken forms I could never have anticipated — self-harm through cutting, bouts of anger and rebellion, and, at her lowest point, we nearly lost her to the darkness of depression. Thankfully, with our support and various resources such as therapy, personal development, Reiki, and other methods, we managed to help her through her darkest times. Though she still faces challenges daily, her future shines brightly ahead.
It wasn’t until my daughter’s struggles that I began to truly comprehend the complexities of depression. Since then, I have made it my mission to better understand this insidious disease and discover ways to help those we love to find strategies for coping and healing.
This is the driving force behind my decision to create this blog. My hope is that it will serve as a beacon of support for those directly affected by depression and other mental health issues, as well as for their families. By providing understanding, compassion, and resources, I aim to empower others to be a pillar of strength for their loved ones in their time of need.
