Did you find something that just changed life for you?

Be it yoga, meditation, religion, medication, therapy, a new hobby - that sort of thing

Having breakfast.

I went from a nauseous, moody, shaky mess that was missing out on half a day to a happy, balanced, capable person who loves mornings.

My son. Before him I had clinical depression and was on medication. Since him my depression is in remission.

Citalopram! And also my DS but I suspect I would have split from DH if not for the meds so I wouldn't have had DS without them.

Yoga - the benefits aren't just physical, though those are also significant.

Letting go of my guilt/shame (it took a priest looking at me and saying "really? that's it?" though!). Marrying my husband. Looking at my newborn baby and realising that, for him, I would do anything, risk anything, give anything and never be afraid to fight for him.
All of these.

Becoming a Christian when I was a teenager. My lifestyle at the time didn't really change that much, but I started to take steps towards a very different future. All of my life choices as an adult have been shaped by my faith.

Giving up caffeine.

How did that help you? I drink gallons of tea. Do you feel better without caffeine?

Stopping contact with my mother and having therapy about it.

A book called he's just not that into you.

A few years therapy

Genuinely starting to like myself. I faked it in the beginning but made myself say one nice thing about me everyday in the mirror. Now I genuinely believe it. It upped my self worth immeasurably
