Beginning from as early in my life as I can remember, I struggled with social anxiety, generalized anxiety, anxious attachment, depression, racing thoughts, making myself small; and all of the feelings/beliefs that come with those experiences. From a young age, I grew up around domestic violence, mental health issues, etc, and had to face many situations a young child should not experience. I was labelled a "shy" kid, but really I just felt so fearful, unimportant, and just simply not enough. I tried everything to heal; talk therapy, medication, you name it. For me personally, these methods were never the answer and always left me back at square one in the end. Like so many of us, my pain was so deeply embedded in who I had become.
