You may know of the good shizzle in my life: living and #travellingtheworld solo (and with loved ones!) as a #britishpakistani (or #kashmiri woman), changing careers, getting my post-graduate degree from the University of Oxford and, of course most importantly having an amazing family and friends. .
What you may not know is that I tried to commit #suicide when I was 16 because I thought I was letting my Kingdom (my parents) down. I spent time in #prison for a crime I never committed. I know first hand what it feels like to not want to live anymore: to want to #giveup and disappear into the ether.
But. But. But.
Because of these experiences,
1. I understand what it's like when you want to give up and not try anymore.#iwantout .
2. I've learned genuine empathy for what other people are going through even if I have never had their specific experience.
3. I understood that the Gurus are wrong: that it isn’t just a #mindshift needed. Lots of people face massive challenges in their daily life. They don’t know what they will eat for breakfast, whether they will have a roof over their head or someone cares when they are released from prison. It is patronising to say the least to say it’s only in the mind!
4. That we should #neverjudgeabookbyitscover or by their pretty little pic on Instagram because we don’t know their story.
It is because of this that I began #UnleashYourInnerBoudicca to help women empower themselves to gain warrior-like confidence, #selfworth and an unwavering #selfbelief.
I do this through a combination of #yoga, #pranayama, #meditation and #wellbeing, but make no mistake, it is through a no BS approach. I believe we either spend the next 10 plus years hearing the same story in our head, or we spend some intense time, invest in ourself so we kick that chapter to the kerb and move the freak on. #aintnobodygottimeforthat
Whatever the case, whatever your history is hitherto: #makeachoice. Take a different path. Create a new story. It will be hard, but it’ll be worth it. #youareworthy. .
