If you didn’t already guess it by reading the title, my name is TC Stefani. The purpose of this article/blog/post or whatever you want to call it is to give you (the readers) an insight into my life. I’m a very positive person by nature, but I won’t neglect to see the reality of certain situations. I love to learn and improve myself every day. I’m definitely a dog person which I will be sure to express in future articles. I’m infatuated with helping other people discover their purpose and helping them become the best version of themselves. With that being said, the next paragraph of this article will pertain to the reasoning of why I’m telling you all of this seemingly random information.
You see, I once used to publish articles on a weekly basis. Obviously, with this being my first post, something catastrophic must’ve happened. Now before I go into detail and spill all my tea, I want you to know that this blog is predicated on positivity, love, authenticity, and spirituality. So in order to make this article authentic, I will now address the reasoning of why I stopped publishing articles. The last article I published was in May of 2018. I can’t say that there was only one reason why I stopped writing, but it does come down to the one thing that’s been holding me back my whole life. MYSELF. I know that’s pretty general, but at the end of the day, we have the power to create extraordinary things in our lives and the lives of others. We also have the power to destroy everything that we have built. This includes friends, relationships, jobs, businesses, identity, integrity, honesty, and a whole lot of other deep stuff. Something else that has taken me away from the blogging world is my struggle with depression.
That’s right I just threw that on you; I struggled with depression. Now I say “struggled” because it’s something I no longer deal with, fear, anticipate, accept, or allow into my life. From my sophomore year of high school, which was approximately 4 years ago to about a month ago, I dealt with severe depression. Thankfully with the help of my friend, family, girlfriend, and most importantly, God, I am set free of depression and open and accepting of true wealth and happiness. During those 4 years, I had felt that I had so much in me to give to the world, but my mind would not allow me to share what I had to offer. Whether it was fear, depression, anxiety, loneliness, loss, grief, or any other toxifying characteristic I always allowed it into the center of my mind which would cause me to never have the courage to write, create, or inspire. Now with that phase being behind me and new TC Stefani being born out of the ashes, I have manifested the energy, love, and faith in myself to do great things. I now know my purpose and I wake every day with a grateful heart and a smile on my face knowing I am loved.
So what now you ask? Well, I plan on continuing to write and publish articles much like this one with the intent to inspire you to live your purpose. And if you already are…I hope you enjoy reading about my journey and spread the word that depression isn’t permanent and healing is on its way.
