Hi! I'm Anjahla Cristina. Thanks for hopping on my site. In April 2017 I was at one of my lowest lows. This wasn't the first time I'd felt worthless, hopeless, alone, and overwhelmed with sadness. At the age of 36, during that stretch of misery, a couple of really good friends helped me pinpoint what I was experiencing. A bout of Depression.
Like so many others who have fought depression from: painful life experiences, unfair circumstances, hormonal imbalances, chronic pain, or other uncontrollable events, I would cope with my "unhappiness" through harmful, self medicating, addictive behaviors, that only perpetuated the internal pain. And when I tried to "get it together" and failed, I would feel defeated and ashamed. Repeating another cycle of depression.
Knowledge empowered me to take action. When I understood what I was experiencing, I stopped blaming and beating myself up, grieved, chose not to feel sorry for myself for experiencing depression, extended kindness to myself, and I decided to NOT let pain be an EXCUSE not to change.
I studied the many treatment options for battling depression, and started making Strategic Healthy Choices to Happiness including: Medication (for a short period of time). Supplements. Exercise. Counseling. A Nutritionist. Gratefulness. Self Love. Personal Compassion. Rather than trying to run away and escape painful feelings and symptoms. ie. Hopelessness, Sadness, Fear, Loneliness, Purposeless, etc. I started fighting the depression itself.
Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute, LOVE, forgiveness, hard work, determination, thankfulness, honesty, human connection, positive mindsets, and healthy decisions diminish the power that pain potentially has over my inner thought life. Through LOVE, Internal Happiness is Attainable. Life is worth it, I am worth it, YOU are worth it, to believe in the power of LOVE and to NEVER QUIT FIGHTING for internal happiness. I am on a life journey, to be the best version of me: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Start your journey today! It's worth it!
