I wanted to do this video because I know it will help someone.
Earlier this week, I woke up and my mood was really low. I could not find the light, could not find the hope, had no motivation to do anything, and generally felt sad. If you are unfamiliar with my posts about depression, you can catch up by clicking HERE and reading until your heart’s delight (be sure to come back though when you’re done lol). The short version is, I’ve dealt with and managed depression for 2 decades now.
I’m feeling 100% better since then and I wanted share this with my Glam Fam (that’s you). I know this will be a revelatory and helpful video, so I wanted to confess that I still have those days.
A large portion of my depression is situational. I have a son with special needs, am first time mother, am a stay at home mother, and I am predisposed to depression, so of course there will be challenges. Life does not always hand you beautiful bouquets of flowers but thank God, I continue to survive and, at times, thrive.
So what did I do in the moment of despair? I told a group of covenant friends and asked them to pray. These are people who had already offered to support me in these times. These are people that I trust. You don’t just tell all your business to everyone now. Most importantly, these are people who will actually pray.
I know some people put online content producers on pedestals and idolize us like we are perfect super humans, and that is not the case. I always try to keep it real here in Glamaziniland with the goal of making real beauty and self love attainable for all.
There is hope. The pit doesn’t always have to last. Your normal may be those ups and downs.
