One day can make your life and one day can break your life. I came to realize this to be true when I walked through the doors of Brookhaven. Looking back, breaking my life to pieces was all I knew. In the past I was constantly sabotaging my inner potential. For every step I took and every accomplishment I made, I took detrimental steps back in the wrong direction. In the first week I came to Brookhaven the topic of the week was opposite action. After spending years of my life in bed, this was the first challenge I needed to conquer. Within this struggle, it took me a while to grasp this concept. I now realize that this was the first of many tools Brookhaven had ingrained in me in order to be successful. After that I took into account all of the tools I needed to practice on a day to day basis in order to regain and take control of my life. As I level up each time, I can finally see those changes within myself that I thought were gone forever. I found comfort in being in a community of women who had gone through similar struggles and have a true understanding of how depression, anxiety and fears can take over your life. And finally I realized I was not alone. With this amazing gift of opportunities that have been given to me, I can finally see the light at the end of what once was a very dark and endless tunnel of hopelessness. I plan to take this time to truly reevaluate and rediscover myself after being so lost for so long. While getting well is hard, staying well is harder. I know that I am up to the challenge! Thank you Brookhaven for saving my life and for bringing it back to me!
