One thing that has helped in my healing process is talking about it. Sometimes we try to hide what we are going through. It is obviously not everyone we should tell our problems to. But sometimes, the more we talk about it the better we feel.
So if we ever meet someone who we feel is open to listening to us we should definitely talk. Maybe not telling the entire long story but its okay to let people know we are going through something. Hearing the good things people had to say to me about me definitely helped me grow my esteem, it made me feel better. It made me want to remain the person I was and not let my bad experience change me, instead to let it strengthen me.
I left Enugu feeling so much better. Thankfully I had to resume work immediately and that kept me busy a lot also. I was determined to let it all fuel my goal.
