Maureen Waititu Says Her Children Saved Her From Committing Suicide

 

One year down the line, Social media influencer Maureen Waititu has opened up on her journey of fighting depression and is finally off her anti-depressants.

According to the mother of two, she was once cocooned in a strained sense of mental health and throughout her journey, Maureen revealed that she seriously considered suicide, twice.

 

She added that she has managed to fight off silent battles, cyberbullying and has seen drastic changes in her life that she never saw coming.

Bravely opening up on the constant battle of depression not too long ago, she said;

“See that smile? That smile was covering severe sadness and depression, in fact, the following day I attempted suicide for the second and last time ever! One year later, I’ve beat depression, got off depression medication, fought several silent battles and won, fought off cyberbullying and saw my life change right in front of my eyes as I achieved things I never even imagined would be possible.” She captioned with an alluring photo of herself.

Waititu then revealed that many people have been asking her how she made it past the traumatic experience but he lacks a correct answer for that but her two boys Lexxi and Kai came in useful in fighting off her negative emotions.

“A lot of people ask me how I did it but mostly I have no answer as this is a very personal journey. However, looking back to this period, I remember I was driving back from Murang’a and I heard my baby Kai who was only a year few months old say ‘mama’ for the first time. Lexi on the other hand was days to turning 4 years old – this child is an angel I tell you. He saved my life over and over again and the thought of leaving my precious boys allowed me to snap out of my suicidal state- and fight for my two boys and myself even though I felt like my world was coming to an end, weh! Never again.”

Concluding her statement, Maureen said that seeking medial assistance actually saved her life bit it wasn’t easy.She stated;

“It wasn’t easy, some days were dark, some hopeful. I took the healing journey extremely seriously and without shame, I took my medication and saw my psychiatrist religiously and without fail. But guess what? My faith and trust in God, my determination to heal, self-education, a good support system and keeping an open mind accelerated my healing. I never thought that I’d say this but I have seen the other side of healing and it’s beautiful!

Although she did not specify what she was healing from, it is believed that her nasty separation with her baby daddy of six years might have contributed to her heightened anxiety and stress levels.

Sensitive Topic. This was me 370 days ago. See that smile? That smile was covering severe sadness and depression, infact the following day I attempted suicide for the second and last time ever! One year later, I've beat depression, got off depression medication, fought several silent battles and WON, fought off cyber bullying and saw my life change right in front of my eyes as I achieved things I never even imagined would be possible. A lot of people ask me how I did it but mostly I have no answer as this is a very personal journey. However, looking back to this period, I remember I was driving back from Murang'a and I heard my baby Kai who was only a year few months old say 'mama' for the first time. Lexi on the other hand was days to turning 4 years old-this child is an angel I tell you. He saved my life over and over again and the thought of leaving my precious boys allowed me to snap out of my suicidal state- and fight for my two boys and myself even though I felt like my world was coming to an end, weh! Never again. It wasn't easy, some days were dark, some hopeful. I took the healing journey extremely SERIOUSLY AND WITHOUT SHAME, I took my medication and saw my psychiatrist religiously and without fail. But guess what? My faith and trust in God, my determination to heal, self education, a good support system and keeping an open mind accelerated my healing. I never thought that I'd say this but I have seen the other side of HEALING AND IT'S BEAUTIFUL! For anyone feeling lost and broken, trust me when I tell you this, better days are always ahead. Just DON'T GIVE UP ON YOURSELF and accept help where it's offered. Pray pray pray! God is always listening and He is aware of our pain and in Faith, He always comes through. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Also remember the story of Job? So that there ☝🏾was a face hiding a lot of pain, but it's all gone now! I hope this encourages someone. Let's normalize addressing mental health and let's support and be kind to each other. 🥂🥂to 370 days of suicidal free thoughts and to many more wins!
