Just Like That: I’m Changing

Last year around this time, I didn’t know if I was coming or going. Life sucked and I wanted no part of it. All I could do was walk around the house in pajamas cry, barely sleep, sleep too much, or just sit in the corners. I just couldn’t cope and felt no need too, life wasn’t even worth living at this time. My body felt like crap, I could barely stand from all the pain I was feeling. I just couldn’t understand why God was making me suffer like this. See those are the thoughts I had going through my head, “It’s God fault” not mines. I did nothing to contribute to the pathetic way I was feeling….said know one ever. So here we are a year later, and I feel better than I felt in years. My mind is little clearer and life doesn’t seem so bad. Yes, I still have my moments because I’m still trying to figure this new me out. My passion for self-improvement is on overload, I’m reading, listening to TedTalks, meditating, and learning to let go. ‘Radical Acceptance’ I can no longer try to change things I can’t control. So just like that, I’m working on me, for me! I’m a continuous work in progress….chat soon!

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. Iโ€™m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future.
