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.ShaChena Gibbs 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!

    Awesome article, thank you for sharing. Too many times we think we can handle everything and don't realize until it's too late that we've lost control.

    Wow sister I hear u we all have strugles and situations and I agree we shall rise together I realize how I will rise and stand stronger than ever is to reinvent myself and invest in What Go wants then invest in me by focusing on what Gods purpose is for my life byy searching the scriptures and learning of him. And what's for me sis will be mines and what's not will not be. My whole life revolved around my husband fore 23 yrs and he letl left me for another woman after I took care of him while he ws incarcerated he tried to mentally destroy me and almost succeeded. GOD said no touch not my anointed. Vengence is mines the Lord will repay him his due diligence trust me not to mention all those who did me wrong when I was good to them I gave it all to him to deal with and he is so sister trust me everything will be alright cause u and I. R a peculiar people royalty sis God has our back be blessed will connect wih u soon.
