“Sept 10th every year is a bittersweet reminder for me. It’s the memories of being a little girl feeling trapped, confused, afraid of the “monsters” in my closet, bed, & definitely in my head. It’s all the trauma that my parents tried their very best to shelter me from but it was just too severe.”
“It was me playing two different people growing up so that no one would find out the truth. Hurt, so much hurt. It was a pain that unless you’ve been there it’s hard to understand. It was toxic relationships, abuse, lies. It was a young girl that couldn’t clear her mind therefore her mind took over.”
“My Dad finding me lifeless on the couch. It was an out of body experience, I’ll never be able to put into words. It was the doctors & nurses who fought to save my life. It was God stepping in & deciding that it wasn’t my time yet. It was a MIRACLE that made me still stand here today.”
“Years of extensive therapy, & everything coming out. It was me taking all the horrible things said & done to me & deciding that it would not label me. It was learning to heal. It was me telling myself that once I was healthy, I would help others who are struggling. It was me eventually creating YouAreMore.”
