Walk with me.
It's a comfortable place in my life when I am able to truly be at ease in my own skin. This blog represents my true self, and true journey in life. Although I do not define myself by being abused for years in the past, I am learning to embrace those experiences as part of my authentic self. Those experiences have led me to this road I am traveling now, and the more true I am to the very real trials I face, my healing will multiply, and I will be able to over come all of the obstacles in my path.
Did you notice I'm not set to private? I'm not crazy, I swear, although you might be wondering after all of the fuss and talk. In my hopes to "cut off" my "parents" I realized that no matter how hard I try to remove my life for theirs, they are going to hear news of my family. They will see photographs that other family possess, they are bound to hear if I have more children, they are bound to hear my family news. I have decided that if they find this blog, then let this blog stand as a witness that I have chosen to not be silenced. A witness that I am happy, that I have over come, that I am not bound my their chains. Let this blog be a witness of how proud I am to claim my past as my truth, and let this blog witness that I am every thing with out them.
I also decided that there is immense power in sharing. Not only for myself, but for other women whom may become bonded to myelf by my story. Sharing allows the truth to be known so that others may unit to journey through this life together. Unit in a way that will remind us that we are not alone. I do not want to close that door for myself, dis-allow myself to continue to meet and know other women I admire and love. There is true strength to be drawn from you and others that I hope to meet.
Welcome to my new home, let's walk.
