Been into a battle with Clinical Depression and Anxiety for 5 years due to career and relationship issues. Solitude and loneliness taught me a lot and they have been my best friends for quite sometime. Along with medication, I've been into therapy and I know the importance of it. Just having someone to talk to during tough times means a lot. Looking forward to help people in need and my little contribution to help them get through will make me happier. Google the meaning of - "Meraki" - that's me !

41 | Divorced, no kids

Corporate trainer. Saw closure of family business, immediately after getting married which pushed me out of comfort zone and was left to explore new territory, left with anxiety, paranoia, self doubt,
A dysfunctional family setup made me an introvert. 14 yrs of marriage put me in the caretakers role - taking full burden of the relationship, which affected my mental health. Learnt how to prioritize myself first because ONLY a happy you makes it easier to navigate. Spent 20 years of my life giving others the priority. Prioritizing yourself is not selfish, it is self-help.

37 | Married, have kids

Entrepreneur. I have been overweight since childhood. Realised much later in life how this unresolved trauma from my childhood affected my mental state leaving me a traumatised adult and a clingy partner. Trust issues, a constant fear of abandonment and me feeling unloved affected my marriage greatly which further worsened matters. I hit rock bottom in my life- lost my sanity, my business took a huge hit and I underwent depression for more than a year. Took therapy and now I am on the path to healing.

A curriculum and pedagogy expert by profession. I saw my marriage turning into a nightmare within 4 months. I am a survivor of domestic violence and cruelty in marriage. I was verbally, emotionally, mentally, financially and physically tortured and abused by my husband and in-laws. After one year of being separated I understand how important self-love is. It takes time to heal the pain but I have identified the strength inside me which is catalysing my fight for justice. Have started following the mantra of self-love over self-pity and things/days have been relatively better.

Visual Communication Designer. I have had ADHD, i.e. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, since December 2019. For me, working on being consistent as ADHDers was very difficult as we (AHDHers) are not very consistent in things, or we tend to not plan our day, or even if we do, it’s difficult to stick to it. So therefore I am working on myself.
