I haven’t always been this in control of my mental state, health, and well-being. Growing up I was always anxious and worried. I would spin out on disastrous thoughts and scenarios to the point of crippling me. I spent so much time just existing.
Around the time I turned 13, I began to severely struggle with depression. I felt so much pain and sadness. I wanted (and unfortunately tried) to end my life on a few occasions, but wasn’t ever able to fully go through with it. It was at this time that I began to mental numb myself emotionally.
Since that time, I’ve learned ways of coping with my anxiety and depression, or so I thought. When I became pregnant with my son, I started to deal with a different kind of depression and anxiety. Then a few months after having him that depression, anxiety, and loneliness crept in, in a powerful way. I had never felt so disconnected from my body and my surroundings.
I felt disconnected from my Savior more than anything.
I didn’t feel like myself, but I didn’t know how to get back to the relationship I once had with Him. This is when I started exploring other ways of worship. I listened to a
meditation app. I read quick devotionals. I sang praise more. I began writing and speaking.
I’ve learned ways to control the depression and anxiety that I struggle with, now I desire to help other mamas find the control and strength granted to them through the Creator.
