It might have been your best friend, your mother, father, your sister, or even your lover. It burns deep inside. You can’t sleep for the anger, the shock, and dismay. You may find yourself still not believing it’s happened to you. But it has!
When those we have entrusted with our time, our loyalty, or even our love betray us, we feel violated deep inside. We feel crushed. We wonder if we can ever recover from this…
Guess what you can, I’m 2 years into recovery from the last betrayal by some family members, and once I realized that the Highest suffered the same fate, I then knew I could overcome the hurt and pain!
I have forgiven my betrayers much like Jesus forgave Judas! Not because they deserve it, I have forgiven them for me, for my sanity, and my peace!
Although I will no longer speak their names, I won’t continue hating them because I WILL NOT let them keep betraying me in my mind!
🖤If you are suffering from being betrayed, you are not alone!
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,
