Photo taken by contributor Captivating Bitter, a woman in her thirties who has struggled with anxiety and depression for most of her life. She has survived emotional abuse, sexual abuse and rape. She has survived suicide attempts and years of self-harm. After wandering her way through life unable to trust and barely feeling alive, she is now fighting to live a healthy life. She has been reading, journaling, blogging and working hard to heal. She is finally taking care of herself and starting to feel better.
About this photo: “Sometimes I thirst for something and nothing seems to quench the thirst that feels like a swelling ache in my soul. I try to satiate this with movies, music, books, conversation, entertainment…but ultimately I come to realize that it is the sweet call of my Maker… inviting me to come on a walk with him and showing me the wild world he created.”
