I was on an upward spiral throughout my life, providing for myself and others, my passion and commitment to being of service attracted incredible opportunities and a community of great friends.
Then, in 2008, everything changed... everything just fell apart—my health, my relationship, my finances—my world came crashing down and so did I!
My story is one of excruciating heartbreak, severe chronic illness and financial devastation—a twelve-year journey that had me fighting for my life.
I learned early on, due to my highly sensitive nature and empathic ways of absorbing the energy of those around me, how to cope. I could walk into a room and immediately sense tension, sadness, and any discomfort.
It was hard to differentiate my feelings from those of others, and all too often, I would experience their emotional pain as my own. I could see things coming from miles away, and somehow I got the idea that it was my responsibility to fix it and make things right.
As the eldest of three, I carried the burden of feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders. I never really felt heard or witnessed as a child, and remember being told, “you’re too sensitive” and “don’t take it personally.” So I rejected certain aspects of myself and took on the role of an overachiever.
I equated asking for help as a sign of weakness and decided that it was safer to do it all on my own to ensure there would never be room for someone to pull a hook, line, and sinker. I depended on no one, all the while ignoring my own need to be cared for and loved.
This journey brought with it much pain, and yet yielded many gifts. I learned through pain, that the love which I was seeking externally, was within me.
When it came down to life or death, many times over, the only choice I had was to choose me.
What saved my life was the decision to fully love and care for myself, realizing that I could no longer give from an empty cup, leaving myself drained and void of energy.
The Road Back…
In order to fully heal I had to take my power back, strengthen my mindset, explore my limiting beliefs, and move past them to understand that things were not happening to me, they were happening for me.
I had to be willing to walk blindly in faith, trust my inner knowing, persevere and commit to doing whatever it took to overcome, irrelevant of my circumstances!
When I finally let go, I was shown the way—caught when I least expected it. I had been brought to my knees so that whatever was left unhealed could rise to the surface.
In the midst of being broken, I was given the gifts of fortitude, gratitude, patience, presence and purpose. I found the strength within myself to walk by faith and not by sight, to discern fact from fiction and remain steadfast on the path to recovery.
