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 the light bulb of what I was experiencing went off I stopped blaming and beating myself up, chose not to feel sorry for myself for experiencing depression, extended kindness to myself, changed my mind about how my life was going to be, and decided to NOT let pain be an EXCUSE to make an excuse to not 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. Positive thinking.
I was honest. I needed help. I needed to change.
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 potential power that pain and negativity would have 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! You can be the beautiful someone that you are.
"Never let pain get you down. And never quit."
