Allow yourself to grow and heal, allow yourself to:
🖤Change Your Routine: Doing things the same can get boring and leave you stuck in a rut! Allow yourself to do something different, like drive a new way home, eat out in the middle of the week, rest, or lay in bed all day!!
🖤Be Kind To Yourself: If you don’t treat yourself that right, no one will! Give yourself credit for still standing after everything you’ve been through, go shopping, buy yourself something nice, or sit alone for a few and enjoy the ‘me time’
🖤Feel Your Feelings: It’s OK if cry you, scream, or rant! It’s OK to feel all those bottled up emotions that you have to hide in order to put on a brave face for others! Feel all those feelings…
🖤Reach Out For Help: STOP suffering alone, if you need a therapist, mentor, counselor, or a coach it’s perfectly ok to reach out for help! This shows that you are ready to start your healing process and you can’t do it alone! You are brave for asking for help, not weak!!
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,
