The more I tell my story, the more I realize how much HIDDEN HURT there is, out there in the world!
I walked off the platform at a church, after sharing the dark and scary things about my life, nervous that people would think LESS of me. That’s when I bumped in to a 50ish ex-military guy on their security team. He was crying.
“THAT… that was me,” he whispered. Another minute passed and he finally continued, “and I couldn’t tell ANYONE… until now.”
Seriously, so many people have been emotionally crippled and are still suffering from unspeakable acts that happened to them, years ago.
But, when we summon the courage to release those secrets that we’ve tried so hard to hide… we, actually, TAKE BACK all the POWER the evil one once had over us! We get FREE!!!
I’m SO honored that my new book, “I Will Thrive,” is already making a difference. I’d like to share part of a wonderful testimony I received.
Chapter 3 and 4 got me like being run over by a truck… crying and trying to stop… but can’t!
I was raped at 16, bullied bad, emotionally and physically… a lot! So I went on a spiral.
Finally got the courage to tell my mom I was raped. Crying uncontrollably. It didn’t go how I thought… in my head. Instead of hugs, kind words, and motherly things… I was asked,
“Were his parents home?
“I told you never to go to a boy’s house when his parents aren’t home!”
My tears immediately stopped and I knew, then, that I would NEVER let her into my emotions, deep again, ever!
Nothing more to say.
Then she says, “Don’t tell your father, he’d kill him!” She was right, he would!
WHY wasn’t that HER reaction? (It would have been mine.)
Yes… I get it! That trauma, that embarrassment, that low self-esteem, that SHAME, that feeling of abandonment are things I had to deal with, too!
I’m so glad that this beautiful woman is finally confronting her issues and that my story has become a catalyst for change.
