Hi! My name is Amy Lo, and I’m a 28-year-old from Los Angeles, California.
I started this blog in May 2017 during one of the most tumultuous years of my life. I was 26 years old, already more than halfway through my twenties, and still felt like I had no idea what I was doing. I don’t know how else to put it except that the struggle was real.
Even though I was a pretty happy kid growing up and my adolescent years were more or less ordinary, my life took a drastic turn at the age of 23 (in 2014) when my once-whole family began to fall apart, leaving me traumatized, depressed, and in need of medical help.
Then 2015 to 2016 was a time of being in denial about my depression, refusing to live with medication because of the stigma and because of spiritual beliefs. As a Christian who went to Bible school, I believed that God could fix my problems, and used that as an excuse to avoid medical help.
My psychological state only worsened, leaving me with no choice but to face my depression head-on and to take ownership of my mental health.
Then in 2017, I found myself planning a wedding with someone who I realized I wasn’t happy with. The relationship fell apart and I had to relearn how to live my own life.
That’s when I decided to move back home to Los Angeles (Dec 2017) to take time to let myself heal. I turned 27 shortly after, and I knew it was time for a new beginning.
As I continued to experience the ups and downs of life, I discovered something interesting. I was seeing that my personal success is undeniably affected by my mental health, and my mental health is undeniably affected by my personal success.
That’s when things clicked, leading me to launch my own business to share my discovery with the world in various ways, shapes, and forms.
I’d love to get to know who my readers are as well, aka you! Feel free to say hi and introduce yourself via Instagram or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you already know me personally in real life… You get the privilege of knowing more about me. 🙂
