“I found that with depression, one of the most important things you can realize is that you’re not alone. You’re not the first to go through it; you’re not going to be the last to go through it,” — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
💚There are tons of people worldwide suffering; I remember being so ashamed to speak about it because my family called me crazy!
💚Being diagnosed with a mental illness doesn’t mean you’re crazy, nor does it mean you don’t pray or believe in God!
💚I’m glad I sought help, I’m glad I get a chance to interact with others who are suffering too!!
Get educated, get the help you need, or if you know someone who suffers…be there💚

Tune in for 5 Steps To Get Your Life Back On Track
We’ve all experienced moments in our life when we have made commitments to people, a job, or, a situation that wasn’t right. Sometimes these mistakes will knock us off track just a little. Tune in for 5 ways to hop back on that train of life…
Happy Watching, Please DM if you have any questions!
Here are a few thoughts that tend to get in our heads which keep us stagnant in our healing and growth!
I usually get so upset with my clients when they use these words because what comes out of your mouth is a product of a negative thought!
These thoughts aren’t helpful! Remember, you don’t have to think or act on every thought that pops in your head!
✸I Don’t Have Enough Time: in my opinion, this is just an excuse and a procrastination tactic! Check in with yourself, trust me , I bet you can find time for things that mean you no good, fix that!
✸NO One Will Ever Love Me: is this why y’all stay trapped in unhappy relationships? This thought is absolutely untrue, and you don’t need anyone to love you; love yourself first, my dear! (check out my new email course😉)
✸Life Isn’t Fair: childdddd life isn’t fair for a lot of us, you ain’t special! There will always be good and bad things happening in your life at any given moment. Hate to break it to you, but that’s life! 🤷🏽♀️
✸That’s Just The Way I Am: 😠I absolutely freaking hate this saying,; you were not born an overthinker; you were not born struggling, hopeless, or unworthy! STOP this thinking immediately!!! You are FEARFULLY & WONDERFULLY made; your circumstances don’t make or break you!
Reprogram your thoughts, and change our life!!! Your healing depends on it! 🖤
As you get ready for the week, here are a couple of reminders:
🖤Be yourself this week, don’t try to compare yourself to anyone else! God made you exactly the way you are…minus the anxiety & depression!
🖤Always, Always be grateful for everything you got until you get what you want! Remember, if He can trust you with little, He will be able to bless you with more!
🖤Don’t go around expecting things from people who continually disappoint you! Don’t expect people to treat you the way you treat them; stop expecting people to love you…That’s your job! But always expect that no matter what, God will come through!
🖤Be patient this week; be sincere in all you do, and trust the process and timing of your life! Things may not be going your way now, but all that can change in a blink of an eye if you keep trusting & believing!
