On this episode of the Athlete Mindset, Athena Perez shares about her journey through forgiveness for her childhood abuse, how the Holy Spirit prodded her about her health and how it led to on a journey to loose 240+ lbs, and how we can shift our mindsets from resenting our bodies to being grateful for them and the blessing that they are.
“For the better part of my life, I thought that God had forgotten about me… I didn't understand why I had to go through what I went through… When she [her Christian therapist] said, ‘You're going to have to forgive some people.' When she first told me this, I said, “Hmmm… yeah, that's not going to happen.'” Athena goes on to share, “I just started with a prayer, ‘I don't know what I'm doing, but, you know, I need your help.'”
