“For so long, I kept things to myself and refused to open up because I didn’t want to burden people with my problems and because I didn’t think anyone would understand what I was going through. I was so wrong. No matter who you are, no matter what you’re struggling with at this very moment, you’re not alone. God is with you,” writes Samantha Yee in a letter for The Catholic Woman.
The Catholic Woman, founded by Corynne Staresinic, is a non-profit story-telling platform that was created to share the many faces and vocations of Catholic women. The mission of this wonderful initiative is to help all women realize that they are welcome, accepted and valued in the Church.
Samantha Yee’s story is just one of the many women who have been featured through the work of The Catholic Woman. In this video, she shares her battle with depression that began as a 16-year-old when she was enrolled at UC Berkley. Her story is one that many can relate to.
