Hi, I’m Yohanka.
At the end of 2017, I was nearing rock bottom in a very dark pit of anxiety, depression and general hopelessness. There was more than one factor that had taken me there and it hadn't happened overnight, but one accelerating factor for sure was the fact that I only had 1 year till I turned 40 and my life was nowhere near what I had expected. I had dreamed of the big job, fancy life, social status, and somehow it felt that if I did not have all that by the time I was 40, I was never going to have it, therefore I would never be happy. My mistake laid on the fact that I was looking outward for happiness, and the quest had to be an internal one. So once at the bottom of the pit, in total darkness and emptiness there was no other option but to start looking inward, and that's when the healing began. Now I’m 40 and I can really say I feel fabulous, I don’t have the big job, fancy life and social status as per today society's standards , but I know I’m finally on the right path in my life, living authentically and being myself unapologetically.
My goal with this website is to help people in a similar situation to mine find their path to healing by sharing experiences, research, resources and tips through a weekly blog ; and to promote my services as an Advocate for Mental Wellness.
