I've been reflecting on how I have healed and how I am feeling okay. I don't want to grieve today.
Looking back I know that many things helped me get to the place I am. My faith was a huge part and still continues to be. I took an antidepressant for a while. I saw a few different therapists/counselors. I journaled, created this blog and wrote a book. I learned a lot about who I am and where I want to be. I set boundaries and am trying to focus on my needs. I did a lot of self-care activities on either a weekly or monthly routine. Careful my emotional spiritual and physical body. Most recently I started a new relationship.
I know there is not one thing that will help every person but hopefully by sharing my story someone else will be able to heal, move forward and be okay with being okay.
