I Can Look in the Mirror and See Someone Beautiful

I turned my pain into power. 

For many years I struggled with depression, anxiety, and had absolutely no self-worth. I struggled with an eating disorder and all this became worse after I had my baby girl. 

I didn’t connect the dots and realize this was due to my abuse as a child. When I heard about The Haven Retreat I just knew I had to be brave and attend. 

What I learned at the retreat has saved my life. I can look in a mirror for the first time and see someone beautiful. I’ve firmly closed that door on my past and turned my pain into power. 

I now have so much self-worth, which is precious to me. No one will ever take that away from me again. 

I am so unbelievably grateful to everyone at The Haven Retreat for helping me reclaim my life. I’m going to make the rest of my life the best of my life.
