My Mirror. My Reflection. My Depression is a harrowing yet empowering story of overcoming some of life's most difficult challenges and transforming them into purpose.
This book is a true story that charts Melissa's healing journey. When Melissa discovers she has been wearing a mask for the last 45 years, she realises she has no choice but to change the course of her life.
Having suffered from childhood sexual abuse from the age of six and keeping the secret from her parents, the trauma of abuse spirals into broken relationships causing her to wear a mask that hides the shame and fear of rejection. Living as a single parent and trying to raise three children on her own, she is left to live a life of depression, embarrassment, rejection and suicidal thoughts.
With no one to turn to, Melissa must find the strength to fight this unseen battle alone. Until one day, God reveals her purpose, helping her reflect on her journey behind her depression and giving her the tools to remove her mask and receive her healing.
Her journey to getting to love the reflection in the mirror is a powerful testament that we are not alone and that there is light beyond the tunnel. Her story is a reminder that there is restoration after chaos and healing after abuse.
