Welcome to Defying Shadows!

If you’re here for the LOGO CONTEST — Click here.

I hope you enjoy your visit and walk way feeling inspired and encouraged! Here’s a little background on what we’re all about!

When I was a teenager, I was obsessed with shadows because I felt like I was always hiding within them. I felt like the darkness followed me everywhere and I could not escape them. Eventually I got comfortable within them and truly believed my life would never get better. It took me a long time to defy the lies the darkness fed me. But when I learned that I could defy the shadows (depression, self harm, suicidal thoughts) I became a new person; a stronger person, with a passion and a better understanding of what my purpose is.

Defying Shadows will be a safe place for all. It will be a place where people can share their stories as a source of encouragement, and where we will share tools, and steps to defy the shadows in your own life, whether it is depression, a mental disorder, self-harm, an abusive past, suicidal thoughts, an addiction, or some other haunting factor within your life. Know you are not alone. Know that there is always someone out there who loves you.
