This is my Truth
I learned from a very young age that my family and I weren't like most families, there seemed to be a dark cloud surrounding us constantly. Growing up in an unhealthy, unstable environment with neglect and trauma, my siblings and I learned to raise ourselves. I fell into a life-long depression, along with severe anxiety and complex PTSD. I didn't know how to love or to be loved. After years of making many harmful life choices and trying to escape, I realized that I didn't have the tools to help myself. I started to explore different ways to mend my wounds and teach myself how to be a healthy person. It has taken me over a decade to realize that I can help people by sharing what I have learned from my struggles. My sincere hope is to continually better myself so I can help the people around me.
Love yourself above all else and show compassion to others. -Ruby
