Mental Health Week 2021 – Jessica’s Story…🤍

Thank you to Jessica aged 30 for not only bravely sharing her experience with us, but for also setting up an online support group to help others, it’s so good to see more people trying to help others! The link to Jessica’s support group is below, give her follow and share the love.

Many people know me as an inspiring brave woman. I have travelled the world as an independent woman, achieved all my goals and everything I desired but what most people don’t know is that two years ago I had given my power away to a man and babe in arms I was lost, hurt, and confused. I didn’t recognise the person staring back at me in the mirror. I was embarrassed, ashamed. How did I let it get this far?

I’d spend most of my days crying, I felt weak. I felt angry. I was borderline depressed and was referred to a support group for domestic abuse. I didn’t take the medication offered to me. I knew I could conquer this. I then had 10 weeks of counselling, bringing up a child I was in a very lonely place but so grateful for the support around me.

For me this is still an ongoing recovery. I have invested my time into working on my mindset and gained my confidence back. The past two years has been dedicated to flipping my mindset. Getting the old me back. The mind is a powerful tool and it’s crucial we learn how to control otherwise it will take control of us.

I actually discovered I had a very toxic relationship with myself. I was co-dependent, attracted unhealthy relationships and didn’t recognise my worth. I was denying myself of becoming the best version of myself. I was holding me back. I was standing in the way of my own goals, but the tables have turned…

I AM BACK!

If you find yourself feeling lost and alone, I promise you, you are not on your own. The best advice I can give you is don’t suffer in silence. There is so much love and support out there.

FEEL what you are feeling. Don’t deny yourself of your emotions, you are allowed to feel the way you are feeling.

Life is yours to own, you just have to take the first step. Be the best version of you. You owe it to yourself <3.

I am now paying forward everything that I have learned about conquering your mindset and unleashing the power within.

I have opened a community to support women and take them on the path I was once on www.facebook.com/groups/unleashthepowerfulwoman/
