Morgan Hannaleck Teaches Students About Emotional IQ
Morgan grew up constantly questioning herself. At a young age, she experienced several incidents that made her question her worth leading to self-doubt and insecurity. She accepted this as her reality and brought this genuine belief with her everywhere she went.
Trying to find value wherever she could, Morgan began to seek validation through relationships with others. In high school, when her very first relationship ended harshly, it left her struggling with crippling anxiety and depression. Seeking a way to fill the internal void she felt, she threw herself wholeheartedly into a second relationship. Feeling like she was never good enough, and willing to do anything to feel worthy of whom she loved, she began partaking in extreme dieting and exercise measures in order to attain the “perfect” physique.
When her second relationship ended, her anxiety, depression, insecurity, and low self-worth grew. Her eating disorder developed and consumed nearly every thought she had. Meanwhile, Morgan began to self-harm in order to distract her mental pain with something physical.
Realizing that her feelings and behaviors were taking her life away rather than adding to it, she decided to go to a residential treatment program in order to face these issues head on. Diagnosed with depression, anxiety, insomnia, and anorexia-nervosa, Morgan came to the root of these problems during her treatment, and developed new, positive coping mechanisms in order to counteract her mental health challenges.
Through this work, she began to see more life in everyday and fell in love with what she was slowly regaining. Now, years into her recovery, Morgan wishes to pass along her story to give hope to others who may experience mental health challenges. She wants them to know that they are not alone, and recovery IS possible.
She currently serves as TEEN TRUTH’s Best Female Speaker and is an associate social worker offering therapy services in San Diego, CA.
