Theresa grew up in a violent home where she experienced all types of abuse. She later was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and told that she wouldn't live past the age of 40 (she's now 46). She also went through a lengthy divorce spanning 10 years.
Effects of the traumatic experience:
Theresa experienced many of the same emotional effects as other abuse survivors. She's battled with depression, eating disorders, low self-esteem, grief and anger.
Overcoming the traumatic experience:
Theresa had a turning point where she got mad about her circumstances and decided to make changes. She went to therapy at first then she studied Psychology to have a better understanding of herself. Developing inner peace and finding forgiveness have also helped her get to where she is today.
What Theresa does today:
Theresa is a transformational life coach who works with women on the topics of grief, trauma and relationships.
Given what you know now, if you could go back to when you were going through the tough times and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?
Theresa's Answer: There is always hope and it can get better.
