A Little Wednesday Wisdom: Don’t Give Up!

How often do we hear these three words? “Don’t give up”, what do they exactly mean to you? Every now and again, we go through times where you just feel like giving the hell up. You’re thinking life would be much easier if we just said, “f-it”! We spend so much to thinking about how hard it is, but forget ย to focus on how far some of us have come. Yesterday, I was pumped up and ready to conquer the world, then doubt set in. Doubt reminded me that I was only 51 days sober, you still get depressed at times, and no one wants to hear from you. Then I look around at how far I’ve come, and I brush that shit off. I no longer have to listen to that negative voice in my head. So what if you don’t feel like getting dress today, or that you haven’t bathed. Just Don’t Give Up! Try again tomorrow, but don’t give up! We have come to far too let all the hard work go. No matter how you feel, get up, get dress and start your day. Failure at this point isn’t an option….Have a great Wednesday!

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.
