How I Went from Hating Myself to Empowering Others With Confidence

How I Went from Hating Myself to Empowering Others With Confidence

I remember way back, middle school, maybe elementary, I would literally write out “I hate myself” over and over. I felt so powerless and so defeated. Those kinds of feelings continued to be an underlying theme in my life and I struggled with chronic depression because of the negative thoughts I believed. 

There were several turning points, but with every single turning point, whether it be when I decided to go to counseling, when I committed to consistent personal development reading, when I read “Battlefield of the Mind” by Joyce Meyer, each of those turning points made a difference because I made a conscious decision to chose to be accept the positive messages and reject my old, but familiar negative beliefs.
