Julie Gichuru has opened up about falling into depression after her parents divorce.
This was back in 1995 when she was 21 years old. Her dad remarried and her mum emigrated. She was left with no home to go to and she didn’t have enough money to complete her degree either.
She lamented to God and complained since she didn’t’ know what to do. Amidst the bitterness and sadness, but she still trusted God and asked Him to hold her and never let her go.
She then found two jobs and studied hard since she knew knowledge would get her where she wanted.
“1995 – 21 years old. 2nd year of LLB Law, in University in Cardiff Wales, UWCC. I was in the throes of deep depression. My parents divorced, Dad remarried and Mum emigrated. I had no home to go back to.”
“I didn’t have enough money to complete my degree. I was frightened and anxious. I lamented with God, I told Him I was so angry with Him, but I still loved Him and I asked Him to hold me tight and never let me go. I found two jobs at this point and studied hard. I didn’t know where I would end up but I knew knowledge would get me there. As long as I had breath in my body, I was going to get there. Never doubt that you can get there.
Never stop moving forward.”
