Ginger then talked about how to combat those problems and heal through means like therapy, nutrition, sleep, and even meditation.

"Now when I look in the mirror I see me, I'm mostly proud & happy with the reflection and I'm able to turn outward and give energy and love to others because I have settled in my sense of self.
