At the age of 17 Chris Wildeboer was handed $40 and asked to leave her home by her mother. She found herself in the big wide world all alone and even though she was relieved to leave the family home given the stress she was living under, she was surviving on the basics of life; with no self-esteem, no dreams, or desires and barely breathing.
She didn’t know any other way. She knew how to exist and survive. That’s it.
At 21 Chris married her husband, he gave her an opportunity to see something better for herself. However it wasn’t an overnight journey to discovering who she was, it was a long, arduous roller coaster ride of breakdowns, anxiety, and not giving herself much consideration.
It wasn’t until a pivotal moment after the birth of her daughter that Chris’s life changed for good.
Chris’s story is packed with personal lessons that act as a reminder that no matter what our story is, it does not define who we are or how we get to live our lives.
