It is often through our challenges that we discover our strengths. After a suicide attempt as a teenager, Hailima Yates wanted to stop feeling numb, sad, and angry at the world. When life’s challenges anchored her down, emotional distress kidnapped her spirit. She needed to rediscover her power. To change her life, Hailima faced the sources that birthed her fears, shattered her self-esteem, and created her self-sabotaging behavior.
When we are struggling with depression, we are consumed by the seductive lies that lead to despair and hopelessness. The lens by which we are viewing our world can also have an impact on how we view ourselves. Depression, insecurities, and adversities can shackle you from living your truth, recognizing your resiliency, and moving forward.
Part memoir and part self-help guide, Hailima’s book titled “Dissolving The Anchor” illustrates a journey from self-critical thoughts and suicidal ideation to an elevated mindset. As in the words of Hailima, “Heal my wounds and let my fading scares be the stories of my triumphs…” Listen in for Hailima’s inspiring message on releasing the heavy links of the anchor holding you back from happiness.
