Ep. 13 – Laura Fleetwood; Wonder Woman, Breakdown, & Hope
Meet Laura, a high achiever and writer at Seeking The Still. She was always able to meet every challenge and had a reputation of being super woman. She had such a high capacity for stress that she was able to get it all done without asking for help. Two years ago, she was chairing a school fundraiser when she experienced her first panic attack, quickly followed by a deep depression. Since then, Laura has found hope through counseling and learning to ask for help. She encourages people to ask for help, too, and reminds others who struggle with anxiety and depression that “there is always hope.” Laura encourages the other “wonder women” out there to look closely at their priorities and reevaluate how they are using their time and energy.
My brokenness is a better bridge for people than my pretend wholeness ever was.”
– Sheila Walsh
