empowering women to embrace their true authenticity
About The Blog
Over the past couple of years, as an individual, I have been working hard to overcome various attributes that had lead to my Depression and Anxiety. Over time, I learned that it was a mixture of various traumatic events, toxic relationships, and actually my daily routine that was too contributing to it as well. Like most women, myself included I was taking on too much that I can handle at a certain time; I wanted to be a million things at once while not realizing that I was slowly making my life miserable. Many times, women can take on so many roles and responsibilities, we forget to remind ourselves that we can only handle so much or do so many things at a time. With that baggage we can get stressed, have anxiety or even be diagnosed with depression, most of the time symptoms we ignore until its too late.
Per Mental Health America, not only can depression be contributed by physical and neurological changes but also contributed by stress from work, family responsibilities, the roles and expectations of women and increased rates of sexual abuse and poverty. In addition, approximately 12 million women in the United States experience clinical depression each year.
