I was 24 years old when I ran into a big road block. This was the moment in my life when I realized that my life was not going how I wanted. I started having panic attacks, I was depressed, my hormones were out of balance and I could not handle my stress levels.
Stress was consuming my whole existence because I didn’t know how to deal with it and consequently I didn’t take care of myself.
I asked myself, “Is this what adult life would always be like?
This was my wake up call. I needed to find balance because I knew it would get worse if I continued on this path and it wasn’t the life I wanted to live.
FINDING THE RIGHT TOOLS
After understanding that the way I was living was not the right way for me, the biggest realization was…
“I don’t have the tools to get better on my own! Where do I even start?”
At school we are taught many things like math, geography, history… which are helpful but they do not teach us practical topics like emotional intelligence, self-awareness, self-care, among others. Topics that would have been very helpful for me at that moment.
