About

Welcome to Inspiration to Overcome! My goal is to use my experience to help people with mental disorders find the motivation, strength, faith, and courage they need to keep fighting against their illness on a daily basis (my experience is with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder [OCD], depression, social anxiety, and fatigue). I strive to accomplish this by sharing inspirational quotes, encouraging reminders, and meaningful advice through this website and on social media. I have always been passionate about making unique handcrafted items. Now, I am excited to finally be able to share this form of hope and inspiration with the world on my new Etsy shop Inspiration2Overcome! To learn more about my story and why I created Inspiration to Overcome, please see About Me. To learn more about Inspiration to Overcome itself, see History.
