This is how I feel about my breakdown in February 2014.
My breakdown enabled me to let go of years of built up resentment.
My breakdown showed me that I had (by choice!) been trying to look after others since I was about twelve years old.
My breakdown showed me that I was very good at putting on my sunshine smile to the world and constantly trying to keep everyone happy...to the detriment of myself!
My breakdown gave me the freedom to say NO.
My breakdown gave me the freedom to say I NEED time for ME.
My breakdown liberated me and gave me the space and confidence to start my writers page.
My breakdown gave me the time and space to organise my Fabulous Fundraiser.
My breakdown allowed me to shine as ME.
All through the grace of god, love and support from friends and some good (and not so good) counselling sessions.
I am now a strong, fiercely independent force of a woman.
I still have many things to work on.
Every day I work on myself. I just need to remember to pray and to take deep breaths.
