I wanted to create THE POWER WITHIN to help anyone who struggles with their mental health because I have struggled with my mind all my life, it has been a long fight getting to where I am now, but I have basically had to rewire my brain, and through that process came more pain, but out came a higher high. So I know how it feels, and I hear you when you say you've had enough, but let me tell you it does and will get better. Hope is a gift we can give ourselves every day.
I don't have the answers on how to get better, as everyone is unique and will have different recovery speeds, but what I do know is talking and reaching out for help is the start of your healing process. Accepting help is not a sign of weakness, you are not a failure, but instead a warrior! Because you have decided not to give in and give up. I had to go back and talk about my darkest times in order to fully move on. You might not feel like talking will help you but there is something you need to address, sometimes a step backwards becomes a giant leap forwards.
Along with talking, self care was also hugely important in my recovery. I still have bad days, days I feel worthless and a burden, however they don't last as long and I recover quicker. Now I am able to be kind to myself. Self-care for me includes mindfulness, affirmations, saying NO and allowing myself to rest.
If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch, this is a confidential space so if you do want to talk to me it goes no further.

Sometimes our path seems to be filled with roadblocks, and we wonder why life is so difficult. Things happen that leave us feeling as though we have little control over our circumstances. This is a time to remember that hope is a gift we can give to ourselves. When we choose this attitude and tap into our inner reserves, we are rewarded with the knowledge of what we have learned in life. The decision to look forward, stay positive and remain hopeful is a key that unlocks the door to possibilities, and, when shared, returns to renew the spirit. May hope be your blessing every day.
