#letgo

You really ought to let go of your picture of how you want it all to be. It means letting go of attempting to control things over which you’ve no control. Among the prime causes of our suffering is our wishing for matters to be different than they are. Yes, we all want a peaceful existence rather than a world filled with arms of mass destruction. Yes, we all wish for health rather than illness. Yes, we all wish for healthy, happy youngsters rather than youngsters who break our hearts. But occasionally life doesn’t hand us what we wish. And when we let go of our needing it all to be a particular way, we may breathe a sigh of relief and open the door to a more potent way of living.

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. Look forward to having you read my blog, ๐“ž๐“ต๐“ฒ๐“ฟ๐“ฒ๐“ช ๐“‘. ๐“ข๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“น๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ญ ๐Ÿ’‹
