I’m Still Standing! Yes ShaChena Gibbs
by ShaChena Gibbs
his has been such a rough year for me since Fall 2011. I am writing to share some of the obstacles I had to break through. My reason for sharing is because I know there are many others that may need to hear my story to get pass theirs. I also want to apologize for those who I have partnered with or communicated with and didn’t follow through my commitments.
For many years I have been suffering with Depression. I never really told anybody, I really wanted to handle it myself. For awhile I had a handle on it, just temporarily. Life events just kept happening and I lost control. I didn’t want to leave my house to attend any events or see anyone. So for months I would hide behind the computer and just keep the business afloat in this way. I would even visit family or close friends. Many people didn’t understand why I would cancel so many events. The truth is I could not handle what was going on in my life.
A few months ago I started the process of repairing my life. First I had to work on the family issues I was dealing with. Meaning I had to begin letting go of everyone else’s problems. They were not mine. Other people problems were the cause of my depression. When I evaluated my life I realized none of the issues in my life were my own. So It was time to let go.
Do you realize depression can also affect your health? Well, it caused me to have severe back pains and chronic migraines. There were times I was on the floor holding my head because the pains were so so so severe. And the back pains will hinder me from walking. I also gained a lot of weight from just sitting at home.
I begin to work out daily. Started walking around the neighborhood and doing short workouts from Youtube. I was drinking Fruit Smoothies in the summer. And I also let go of other people problems because they are all grown and they have to work out their own issues. You have to choose what words you will accept in your ear. I do this everyday now. I can listen however I will not take ownership of any one’s problems except my 11 yr old daughter.
So again I apologize to anyone that I have disappointed in the last 12 months so. I also want to Thank all of the supporters who have called, emailed, texted, or even inboxed me during these times. You always have patients with me. Now it’s time to get back on the Star and RISE! JOIN ME! LET’S RISE TOGETHER!
