The healing journey is known to be extremely messy & difficult, which is the reason why so many never step into it, but the rewards it brings are absolutely 1000% worth it.
To get to where I’m at, I had to go through all the difficult times. If I hadn’t become an addict, if I hadn’t begged at the subway & sold drugs to support my addictions as a teenager, if I hadn’t been repeatedly assaulted & abused, if I hadn’t married an abusive man, if I hadn’t had to raise 3 kids on my own…I wouldn’t be who I am today…all the character traits that I love in myself, the caring, the resilience, the strength & the leadership, all these traits came from or were perfected going through the darkness.
But most importantly, if I hadn’t decided that I deserved and wanted a better life for myself and my kids…I would definitely not be we’re I am today
Today, I have no regrets & I’m proud of where I’ve been and how far I’ve come. I wouldn’t change any of it. When I started my healing journey, I had a vision that I would turn my pains into gains for myself & others so I founded “Lighting Up Dark Corners” to empower survivors to heal & rise & to bring awareness to child sexual abuse.
Here I am a few years into my sobriety, 55lbs lighter with just about no more symptoms of fibromyalgia & the best part of all…my vision is coming to a reality.
