Attending college taught me many things. I was the first one in my family to get a college degree, which was a very big deal at the time. College taught me how to become an independent person, manage my own life, and how to follow through on goals. It also enabled me to be an angry feminist, blaming men for all of my troubles in life.
Fast forward to the 90s…I found myself in a very different place. I was scratching to try to make a living, not able to find meaningful work. I was chronically depressed and a full-blown victim, unable to see how I could make any positive change in my life.
In the mid 90s, I was introduced to a woman who had a totally different approach to health (using classical homeopathy). After working with her for a couple of years, my depression was gone! I moved out of state and launched my own business.
I began to see a world full of opportunities. I could choose and re-choose if I didn’t like my choice.
This is when I truly began to take responsibility for all my decisions in life. It felt like real FREEDOM!
As I continued to get more healthy (using only homeopathy and not using any western medicine), I saw clearly how diseased my thinking patterns had been. I understood how this diseased thinking had led to my victimhood and depression.
I began to question everything and approached the political scene with new, critical thinking skills. I became very disillusioned and stopped voting completely at one point, because I believed it didn’t matter who you voted for—democrat, republican, or independent—they were all corrupt and the system was rigged.
