4 Ways To Overcome The Power Of Darkness | Clozette
When you feel as if your life is trapped in darkness, how do you survive such a challenge---of feeling that sense of heaviness within you, pulling you away into seeking utter isolation and disconnecting from everyone and anyone around you?

Krystal Choo, the successful tech entrepreneur and the CEO and Founder behind the Wander app, shares her journey through the darkness she faced that started back when she was 13. Seemingly out of nowhere, she began to feel as if something wasn't right, experiencing an acute sense of isolation that drew her away from the people she cared about, pushing her into an emotional whirlwind she once felt she couldn't control or ever get out of.

But she did. Eight years later, she's back in control of her life, with a successful tech company that continues to inspire her every day. As one of the many who are diagnosed with severe clinical depression, Krystal is now sharing her story as testament to the fact that you are the master of your own destiny. And with this, she hopes to inspire others to fight out of their own darkness.




So draw inspiration from her journey. Keep reading below to learn how she has drawn motivation from light in order to channel new found strength from darkness to live a life that is both fulfilling and inspiring

Take It One Day At A Time




"I had lost the will to live. And it's not so much that I wanted to die. It's just that I didn't want to live. People always say there's this light at the end of the tunnel. You're in the tunnel...but there's is no light. I was desperate to get better, though. I kept going for therapy and every time I wanted to end my life, I told myself: just one more day."


Make The Choice To Live




“I made that decision to live...however hard that was. Slowly, a small light appeared after eight years. I had finally come out of the darkness. Depression is always with me but now I can control it, and from it I take a lot of strength."


Step Out From The Darkness




"My strength comes from my darkness. it comes from what I've been through and what I know I can survive. And when I combine the two, I really believe that nothing is out of my reach."


Pull Your Strength From Darkness



"Depression can be about not seeing things at all. You're so much in your own prison in your own head... Depression almost took my life. Now, it's the fire I draw my strength from."

Inspired by Krystal's journey of self-empowerment, take that challenge to illuminate your journey and set ablaze your life’s passions. There should be no room for self-doubt, nor should you allow your personal darkness to blind you from fulfilling your dreams.

Take that step, change your destiny, and empower your life.
