My Depression and Anxiety Story
Stress, anxiety and depression are caused when we are living to please others. -Paulo Coelho
I completely agree with the above statement as trying to please others was one of the biggest contributing factors of my diagnosis with depression. Being a blogger and hopeful influencer left me thinking that I had to do, be, and buy certain things in order to be successful. Luckily, I've come a long way with my thinking but I'm still a work-in-progress.
These last few years I've been living my life in a way that was not 100% authentic and unfortunately, that had an adverse effect. It's not all bad though... I've been able to find clarity with my mental and physical health as well as a more clear direction with my work and brand. I'm feeling really hopeful for the future.
Here's to a good, authentic life! 🥂
