Protect Your Peace This Holiday Season 🦃

🍂As we begin this holiday week, for those of us who don’t celebrate with family, DO NOT feel ashamed or guilty!!

🍂Everybody doesn’t have a hallmark family, and you ARE NOT obligated to put yourself through hell for a piece of dry turkey😝

🍂I am genuinely happy for those of you who get together and enjoy loved ones; this DOES NOT give you the right to look down on others!!! Pray for us as we start the holiday season; invite us over, but don’t chastise us over our choices!!

🍂To those of you who have toxic people in your lives, protect your peace this holiday, guard your heart, DON’T be bullied into toughing it out because it’s family…NO!

🍂Stop sitting around the table with people who keep secrets, talk behind your back, and backstab you!
It’s ok to start new traditions; it’s ok to be with friends who are like family to you!

🍂Protect your peace, protect your mental health, save the bail money🤣

Have a great Monday and Blessed Holiday Week,

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, 𝓞𝓵𝓲𝓿𝓲𝓪 𝓑. 𝓢𝓱𝓮𝓹𝓱𝓮𝓻𝓭 💋
