Our founder was feeling the same way when the idea of EllaGrows was born. At 50 years old she decided that it was time to take her life back. After almost twenty years of marriage, she lost it all in a matter of months. Her home, job, dignity, family, and friends, but most importantly she had lost herself in the process and did not know how to get back.
Blindsided, freaking out, tired of questioning why and telling everyone else she was fine, depressed, disoriented, full of anxiety, crying, with no sleep, and a wine bottle short of becoming a wine-aholic she knew something had to change. It took her three years, moving six times, and a lot of introspection to finally grow and emerge out of the shadows with hope.
One of the lessons she learned is that the human body and brain are unbelievably strong. They can withstand an inconceivable amount of physical, mental, and emotional pain. She also realized that there is some kind of supernatural strength inside every woman that helps her to find a way and a solution without any outside help.
However, the intense trauma, identity shift, and physical symptoms could not be ignored, and she realized that therapy, a healthy community was the only way. She knew she couldn't change what happened, but she could definitely support and help other women.
"The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance”. - Nathaniel Branden
