I had to think my way out of depression!!
In the beginning it was a deadly process, a daily struggle! The thing about depression- as a survivor of domestic violence- is that it never shows on my face!
See I was great at hiding all the time- what I was feeling, what I was thinking, what I was processing. My abuser taught me well- to put on a good face for the world ! So when I left, I felt like I need to continue to do that. I smiled, I laughed, I played and seemingly had a great time!
After reading Joyce Meyers "Battlefield of the Mind" I knew I had to do something about my mental state of health! I took time to place positive quotes and affirmations EVERY WHERE.- and I listened to them ALL THE TIME.. until eventually they replaced all the negative the thoughts with positive ones!
You have to trust the process when it comes to starting your life over ! You are so worth it my friend!
Trust me from a woman who didn't look in a mirror for over a year after I left my abuser... you are worth it!!
