Evelyn, 22, Australia

My depression started when I was in high school. I couldn’t be my authentic self, and didn't even know what that was. It started becoming really debilitating. I couldn’t function and had to drop out of university. I thought it was my fault for not being able to just get up and be happy. I saw a therapist, psychiatrists and general practitioners. They all validated my feelings but I wasn’t learning many tools. My suicide ideation got pretty bad and I decided to travel. Thank the universe or serendipity, I found New Life and thought “wow, this might be what I need”.

New Life has literally given me a new life. The community has been a game changer. Before, I hadn’t spoken to more than one person about my depression, and now I was sitting in circles with other people and letting out the pain I had locked in for years. I felt heard for the first time. The meditation, yoga, life coaching, and workshops, all taught me that feelings are OK. I started to look at them as messengers, rather than as good or bad.

Now, I feel a sense of wonder for life. I have a new curiosity for what lies ahead, rather than expecting life to be a certain way. I’m less afraid to make mistakes. I’m learning to manage my depression. I feel hope. I like to say that I have self compassion and self kindness for being right here, right now.
