This is me, my story
I was 'the good girl' who did "all" the right things. On the outside, I had it all! Great looks, long-term boyfriend, graduate, had a great job but I was always searching for my purpose, unfulfilled.
Let's start the story in 2012. I joined a network marketing company and gave it my all heart, blood, sweat, and tears.
On that entrepreneurial journey, I was losing the closest relationships, and the people-pleasing side of me couldn't bear the thought of others being upset with me. So, I made a choice. I choose them instead of me and closed the business in 2014.
I felt like a failure. I started to experience anxiety and depression. Yet I kept pushing through, hoping things would turn around. I continued to work a job I hated because it was a toxic environment, but I was good at it, loved to serve the community, and wanted to please those around me. I thought that things would get better, but they didn't. I slid deeper into depression.
I no longer trusted myself and felt obligated to listen to everyone else except for me. Looking back, I realized that I always had a choice, it just wasn't apparent to me.
I slid deeper into depression, contemplated self-harm, and experienced suicidal thoughts. I was scared yet in denial about my mental health. I didn’t tell anyone. I just existed, going through the motions. I felt completely drained, miserable, and lost.
In 2017, I sought help from my doctor who referred me to a psychotherapist. It was helpful but not the right fit, so I moved on, still feeling depressed, anxious, and scared about where my life was heading. Life began to crumble around me, just before Christmas 2018, my eldest brother passed away. The reality of life and death settled in and something within me began to search for better. I was still depressed, but now terrified of my suicidal ideation. I began to watch videos on youtube and read books on personal development, anything I thought would help. Slowly, I began to truly acknowledge that I needed to shift my life. But you know the saying: when it rains, it pours; so things got worse before it got better...
Finally, at the beginning of 2020, the eyes of my heart were opened. I realized that I have given my body, identity, power, and soul away in an emotionally abusive relationship and toxic work environment. I needed to put down some boundaries or
I would never have the 'better' I sought. So, I left those toxic relationships, and I began picking up the pieces of my life.
I then realized that I didn’t know what I wanted, and worse who I was.
Since 2020, I have been doing the work (spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically) and picking my life back up.
I surrendered my life to my faith, I studied the Bible, and an intimate love relationship with my Creator formed. Where I learned whom I was through following my intuition in various experiences, such as journaling, nature walks, reading specific passages I felt led to, weekly spiritual mentor conversations, coaching, getting completely out of my comfort zone, and having open and raw conversations with myself and those who supported me.
Through this chapter of my journey, I have birthed my purpose of inspiring others to action through intuition. Intuition to me is our faithful communication highway. It is our guide to our God-given purpose.
