NAMI Connection support group 1/10/17

I co-facilitate the NAMI Connection support group and I have done so since last April 2016 when I completed the training at the NAMI Mercer center. I love being a peer leader. You cannot co-facilitate the NAMI Connection support group unless you are a member of NAMI Mercer and live with a mental illness. I used to co-facilitate the support group years ago. I think I first trained in 2012. We are all working on ourselves myself included. Nobody has it all together. Everybody is not where they want to be. We are all works in progress. Even though I feel comfortable in my own skin and love being Ayesha there are days when my voices hurt my feelings with negative comments about me. I’m my own worst critic. I know that I never thought I’d get to where I am so I can really look back and see the hand of Almighty God saying “I love and approve of Ayesha. So Ayesha can love and approve of herself” To me that is more powerful than anything. The Bible said God so loved “Ayesha” “the world” that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
