Better Than Disney: Erin Finds Her Strength
Prior to beginning services with Wediko, Erin was at a loss. A combination of anxiety and depression left her unsure of herself. Erin’s self-doubt was debilitating, crippling her social interactions and moving her further away from family and friends. Erin and her family credit Wediko for getting her life back on track. This is the letter she gave her clinician in their last session.
“1 Universe, 9 Planets, 204 Countries, 809 Islands, 7 Seas, and I had the privilege to meet you. It blows my mind to think about it that way, like what are the odds? Whatever the reason may be for why we crossed paths, I am glad that we did. I have learned more about myself, and the world in these past two years than ever before. I can’t thank you enough for being part of my journey.
Whether you know it or not, I have learned so many things from you that I will remember for years to come. Such as, being stubborn about my goals and flexible about my methods, what consumes my mind controls my life, and so much more.
A quote I can relate to is, “When I look back on my life, I can see the pain I’ve endured, the mistakes I’ve made, and the hard times I’ve suffered. When I look in the mirror, I see how strong I’ve become, the lessons I’ve learned, and I am proud of who I am.” – Unknown
Today, I can finally say that I am not ashamed of what I went through. I am not saying I am proud if it but in a way thankful for it because I am stronger than I would have ever imagined I would be. Wediko: Better than Disney in my mind. It will always be my home away from home. We must accept the end of something in order to begin to build something new. This is it. Thanks for everything and know that I will never forget you.”
