In this week’s episode of The Resiliency Factor Podcast, I open up about my own previous experience of battling debilitating depression, paralyzing anxiety, and feelings of worthlessness for most of my young adult life. I also talk about some of the reasons why so many people in today’s society also struggle with the same or similar conditions I once did.
I also talk about my healing journey and the moment in which I realized I wanted my life to be different. I was at a crossroads and I desperately needed God. I also needed to make a conscientious decision to forgive myself for any past mistakes I’d made.
I knew that if my life was going to change, it was up to me. Ultimately, I had to choose to love and accept myself unconditionally.
In this episode, I take an in-depth look at the concept of self-love… what it is and what it isn’t and how it’s essential to our survival and our success as people and as entrepreneurs.
Key Highlights from Our Episode
- I explain why up until only the last few years of my life, I felt like I wasn’t good enough. Ravaged by the need to be perfect and plagued by depression and anxiety, I discuss why at the age of only 28, I had a complete nervous breakdown. I also reflect on this time in my life and look back on it as a blessing in disguise.
- I refer to a time in my life when things got so bad that I actually contemplated not being here anymore. I figured that if this is what life was going to feel like, I’d rather not be alive. It was too painful to face everyday and I seriously contemplated giving up for good. I thank God for bringing me through such a difficult period of time. If not for him, I wouldn’t be here today.
- I also provide an in-depth look at how, along with the help of God, I was able to heal through and overcome depression, anxiety, and self-sabotaging thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors once and for all.
- I discuss why I decided to host a Free 3-Day Self-Love Revolution Online Challenge in honor of my birthday week! PS – it’s not too late to join. Just click here and jump right in!
