She had nothing to complain about yet she felt empty

She stood in front of the room at the podium with her notes prepared. She’d done this countless times before.... “All you have to do is put a smile on your face, hold eye contact. Tell them what they want to hear. Put on a show, that’s what you’re here for. Fake it.” She went through the motions and at the end of her presentation, she was applauded...

She couldn't find any Relief

When she started to open up to me, that pain pulsates from her.... “It’s so sad to say you have a problem with yourself when from the outside it appears you have a great life. We have eve...

I’m so heartbroken and lonely....I don’t think I can go on....” 12 months before she had what she thought was the perfect family. Happy kids. A long term happy marriage. A happy home.

She couldn't stand the sight of herself

Bree Stedman, June 22 2019

She was drowning under masks

Bree Stedman, June 15 2019

7 years ago, on my 30th Birthday, I took a massive leap of fate and went to a Women's Empowerment Weekend Retreat. I was scared out of my mind and nervous beyond measure. Up until that weekend, I'd never invested financially in myself. I didn't know what to expect, but at the same time I knew it's where I needed to be.
