My Mind Used to Be A Scary Place – 14 of 21
When people used to ask me where I saw myself in 5 years, I used to freak out. I couldn’t imagine living another day let alone living another 5 years.
This was because of a few factors. One, I belonged to a religion, that prophesied doom and Armageddon coming any day. I thought I was going to be hunted, tortured, and killed as a result of belonging to that religion. This used to create all sorts of terrifying experiences in my mind. My mind used to be a scary place.
When I was 14, I was hospitalized in an effort to protect myself. I was dealing with uncovering abuse and as a result, I was extremely anxious and depressed.
In this video, I share my experience with being in an emotionally dark place and where I am now.
I offer this story as a light of hope for those of you that are feeling like you are stuck in a dark tunnel of despair.
