I thought I was doomed to live with depression and anxiety my whole life.  My coping mechanisms and medication were backfiring.  Sure, I was a strong, successful person.  I handled everything that came my way.  But, it was just too hard.  Too heavy.  My life looked happy, but all I could see and feel was darkness.

With each decade of my life, I added on more coping mechanisms and health problems.

Why did life have to be so hard?  30 years of suffering, I was done. Fed up. Ready to let go.

I made one last small question to the universe.  Is there an easier way of living?

The answer was yes. Clues were revealed to me. I learned and implemented. I evolved into a different version of me.  It worked.

An easier life without suffering...or a least a whole lot less suffering.  This is my journey.
