Sharing my story changed my life.
When I was younger, part of my depression came from feeling deeply isolated. I felt so sad and so alone and this caused what I call the pain of pain.
There's the original pain, the hurt, and then the pain of shame that overlays it.
And once you remove the pain of shame, it helps you see that nothing you feel is yours alone.
That knowing helps you open your heart to yourself, so you can fully feel and let go.
If you feel afraid to tell people how you feel, it's really important to find safe spaces to do that. It changes everything. To know that you're not alone.
