Hi there! I’m Meleah
I'm Meleah... A therapist intern. A coach. A friend. A sister. A cat-mom. A musician. A survivor.
There's one particular person who changed my life forever... and he is my ex.
I met him when I was 20.
From the very beginning, there were red flags.
He wasn’t open with me 🚩He was secretive 🚩He hid things from me🚩
I just thought he needed time to open up. I thought I was being paranoid. I thought he maybe just needed some time before opening up. I ignored all of the gut feelings.
Fast forward to 8 months later, we were in the thick of it🎢
As I write this, it’s honestly hard to tell the story. I get confused. I still—to this day—don’t know what was true and what was a lie. And I’ve had to accept the fact that I will never know.
But what I do know is this… this guy destroyed me. I was a shell of myself. And if I’m going to be completely honest…? I would spend hours every single night drinking wine and sobbing on the kitchen floor.
(It was not a great look for me 🙃)
He was not only destroying my emotional health & inner peace, but he was also bringing alllll sorts of fun stuff to the surface that I’d bottled up for years.
And this is when my life started to change…
💛I started to heal from YEARS of trauma that I never had the courage to face before.
💛I overcame years of pain and sorrow that I couldn’t stand to look at.
💛I discovered the ways that I was sabotaging my life and my own happiness.
💛I started facing my shadows and cultivating self worth for the first time in my life.
💛And I finally found it in me to forgive myself, to forgive others, and eventually… to forgive him.
I thank him every single day for what he taught me and the life he cracked me open to.
If it weren’t for him, I would not be NEARLY as happy, confident, loving & present 🌿
Would I choose to go through it again? No, thank youuu! 🙃
But the things I learned along the way… made that 1.5 years of hell (more like 3 if you count the years of healing) worth it.
Our greatest pains can be our greatest gifts.
And if you’re not there yet In your healing journey… don’t worry. There’s absolutely no rush in the healing process.
Just know that healing is so freaking possible 🌈✨
