Violet Detre is a Happiness Advocate, speaker, best-selling coauthor of ‘Ready, Set, Go!’ with Brian Tracy and host of The SuccessPath Show on YouTube
Violet became a Christian at eight years old but was stunted by health issues, unfortunate circumstances and life’s challenges. Through her journey of recovery, she learned that it was possible to not just survive the day-to-day, but to achieve personal fulfilment and thrive!
Violet holds a Professional and Executive Master’s Coaching Certificate through an International Coach Federation (ICF) approved university and a bachelor’s degree in Education and Life Coaching from Liberty University where she studied Life, Health & Wellness, Financial, Marriage and Leadership Coaching.
Violet was born and raised in Laredo, Texas. She’s been married for 25 years to her husband, a retired US Army veteran. They’ve been blessed to be able to travel throughout the United States and abroad
In this episode, Violet shares her story of how she struggled with severe depression and multiple suicide attempts, wondering if lasting joy and peace were truly attainable
At five years old Violet was molested by a family member, resulting in a cascade of health issues as a result of being unable to talk about what happened. Mercury poisoning from fillings in her teeth also led to brain fog, which continued to deteriorate after she finished school
After losing her grandfather, she spiralled downwards and completely lost hope – she was found by her husband after taking a cocktail of medication and revived in the hospital.
That wasn’t the first time Violet attempted suicide
Violet discusses the difficulty of her journey from being suicidal to the Happiness Advocate she is today, and how she pulled herself out of the darkness, found joy, hope and rediscovered her faith and relationship with God
If you are struggling with finding joy, feel like you’re losing hope or are having suicidal thoughts, this episode is for you
You are enough and guidance and support is here to unchain your pain.
