This was the moment I got serious about doing my work. This is the moment I was willing to invest whatever amount of time, energy or resources I needed to heal myself. I found a new counselor, started attending mindfulness and meditation retreats, changed my diet, ended relationships, stopped lying to myself and started telling the whole truth (even if it hurt people’s feelings), journaled, prayed, and cried. After months of hard work, things started to change. As a matter of fact, things changed drastically. Change occurred in every area of my life. I had hopeful and positive thoughts, I felt better, and I connected to the God within myself.
