I suffered from Major Depression Disorder, which affected my work, relationships and social life. I walked like a zombie, stared blankly into the air, had sleepless nights, ate instant noodles at 3am, limped badly and carried severe backaches. I hid at home and didn’t want to talk to anyone. I couldn’t bear to look at myself in the mirror, which after all was a face scrounged together in misery and despair. I felt like crying but there were no tears while I was alone, yet tears rolled down at the most inappropriate times with others. Isolation set in, and it seemed nothing could ease my sense of disconnection. Where I once felt competent, now simple things were huge challenges. I felt like a mess, inside and out.
But more than that, I was in deep and dark abyss. Something had to change.
There were times when it seemed like life was only this suffering, but something inside of me knew there was more to life, and more to me. This fueled my curiosity and passion. There is something like this in you, as you read these words; you know that you are meant for more.
"You know you can heal and thrive." I made a strong, life-changing vow: I am going to heal.
Yoga and meditation helped me evolve out of a life of pain; these techniques can guide you too, to provide relief and cultivate your truest happiness.
