Happy Tuesday, hope everyone is up and getting your day started. I was feeling good about myself this morning after looking in the mirror. For the longest time looking in the mirror scared me, I only saw a dark sad soul no amount of makeup and wigs could cover. Now, looking in the mirror I see a survivor, a warrior, a beautiful woman who once again overcame what the devil meant for my harm. The bags under my eyes are no longer visible, my skin looks bright, clean, and radiant. I’m beginning to love myself again, I’m beginning to worry about how I look out in public. I love me and that’s ok!!! Self isn’t selfish, it’s the right thing to do. Shout out to whomever is reading this and needed to know that it’s ok to love yourself more than that addiction, than that abusive spouse, or that nasty eating disorder. Self-love isn’t selfish. Please share to inspire others! Have a Terrific Tuesday!
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.
I’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.
Look forward to having you read my blog,
