Does this sound like you?

Teens girls and ladies, can you relate to any of these?

Anxiety & Depression

You worry about everything and it sucks so bad. You have felt like you lost control and were going to die. You were breathing fast and shaking. Or maybe you often feel sad or down. Sometimes you hate your life.

Lack of Self-Esteem

You can’t stand when people look at you, you feel like people are thinking messed up things about you. You feel like you’re going to do something stupid and embarrass yourself. You don’t feel good about yourself. You are negative towards yourself and put yourself down.

Loneliness & No Support

Relationships are difficult. Maybe it’s hard for you to trust people, talk to people, or you’re just unhappy with family, friends, or your partner. It’s hard to talk about it to people because they don’t understand and you feel uncomfortable.


“Not everything that can be faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed that is not faced.” – James Baldwin

Making changes in life takes courage and is not easy. In fact, it can feel incredibly scary and be a difficult journey to navigate on your own.

But what if you had someone you could trust — someone you could talk to who did not judge you, who offered support, acceptance, compassion, and respect — someone who had your back? Can you imagine how much easier that would be?

I have a passion in my heart
