On October 30, 2021, my life changed forever. My sister was shot and killed and passed away in the early hours of October 31, 2021. I had no idea at that moment how much I was about to endure. I had already had multiple tragedies happen in my life so naturally, I thought I could handle and navigate this road ahead of me. Well, I was wrong. Over the next 15 months the grief, anger, and sadness became overwhelming. I could feel myself dying a little each day and I no longer could handle the emotional and physical pain that I was enduring day after day. I knew I needed help.
When I walked into Centered For Life I knew I was right where I needed to be. Through intense therapy with EMDR and Neurotherapy, I was able to have my life back. I was a little hesitant at first because I thought it would “change” me, but it didn’t, it saved me. I’m finally able to deal with my sister’s passing with a clear head. I’m able to take that breath that was taken from me 15 months ago. I’m able to feel hope and happiness again. I can realize when I need to give things to God and count my blessings and am actually able to do that.
Centered For Life saved my life. I know without a doubt if I didn’t go to Centered for Life it would be a matter of time before I lost my fight with grief. Today, I smile. I smile because I know I will be okay, my family will be okay, and even though I’m still heartbroken, I’m able to see the sunlight again. Centered for Life became my saving grace and I will always be thankful for the love and support they are able to share through their love for God and all of God’s children.
