The past few weeks during our Flashback Friday’s, I have shared some of my deepest and darkest moments. The recovery process was not easy. It was the hardest few months of my life. But with a lot of prayer, many hours of talking to counselors, and the belief that one day I would get better, I found a true joy and the daily struggle with depression, cutting and suicidal thoughts became easier. Each and every day is a challenge. Everyone has bad days. I simply learned that when the going gets rough I must remember to depend on God.
I have learned that I am going to have days were I am sad, days that I do not want to smile or be happy because I am simply sad. I have been through some tough times since then, but I take each day at a time, and each day I take a step forward. God has healed me and I believe he will use this story to help others who believe the same lies that SATAN put in my life.
