When I left the church, my world had been turned on its head. I felt that I no longer belonged with my family, friends, and community. I became fearful and felt that the extreme negativity I had been met with had permanently damaged me. Though coaching, I learned how to process my feelings and “be there” for myself. I learned how to maintain a healthy and positive relationship with my family, friends, and community. I am now experiencing the happiest and most confident time of my life!
