Let's start at the beginning...
2015 started like most years. I celebrated New Years with friends, we watched the winter start to fade away, things were cruising along nicely - or so I thought.
Bam, March 2015 hit, the month that my life changed forever. It was the start of what I thought would be the worst year in my life. I experienced more tragedy and loss that I could handle. My career was in jeopardy, my mental health tanked, and PTSD moved in.
Just when I thought it couldn’t get worse...I was wrong.
Words cannot describe the shit show that became my life in 2016.
My Mental health that I had worked so hard on, was starting to decline. My life was unraveling and I had no way to stop it. I felt I had no control over what was happening, no matter how hard I tried.
This was when I started working with a coach who helped me get out of where I was stuck and grow as a person. You see PTSD, if you have never lived with it, changes the person with the diagnosis - but it also changes those who care for them too.
In May my husband left. Now that’s a story in itself, but him leaving showed me that I had a victimhood belief system where I fully believed that no one cared about me.
Perspective is key, and having awareness of this limiting belief is what really kick-started my healing journey into action...
They say there's a difference between being alone and being lonely.
My work has allowed me to build a road map to see the barriers and then overcome them. If there is one thing I have learned, it’s that things are not always as clear when you see yourself as a victim.
To see the barrier and then overcome it you need to not only have a variety of tools, but also have the courage to reach into the tool box and find the one that works. It might not be the first one you grab but keep going until you find the right one.
I used to go from being lonely and reliving all of those feelings from my childhood to knowing I have such a full life and I'm grateful for it.
Now, after doing more work on myself I have let go of the feelings of loneliness, the anger, the sadness and the guilt that comes with having the memories but not the emotions.
I see the lessons and use them to move forward, rather than letting myself be a victim to them...
You will have failures, but it's what you do with it that really matters.
I guess if there is one thing that I would want for you to take from my story is that we all have barriers that hold us back.
But when you fall off your bike do you then throw the bike away, or do you get back on and keep going?
Do you stay in a job that does not light you up or do you find your bravery and strength to say goodbye?
Do you stay in a relationship where neither are happy just because or do you say thank you and goodbye?
You can live in a place where life happens TO you, or you can choose to grab life by the balls and let it happen FOR you. If you keep going, I promise it gets easier to grab them!
The tools I used for my journey included a lot of different self care stuff, hypnotherapy sessions, meditations, ongoing learnings, and I surrounded myself with friends and family who supported me...
Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.
So, I think it’s safe to say I’ve been through a lot of shit, put in the time and effort to work through it and have come full circle out the other side.
Now, it’s your turn.
