My life started being sexually abused and neglected by those who were supposed to take care of me. The trauma of the sexual abuse caused numbness in so many areas of my life. I felt shame. I felt anger. I felt pain. I felt negativity all around me. I wanted to scream at the world or anyone who would listen!
I didn’t want to keep those feelings buried deep down inside. But I didn’t know how to talk about it or how to bring up the subject. So in 2016 I launched a personal blog and made the decision to find my voice. This was my first stepping stone to start the healing process from the PTSD, anxiety, and depression I was battling.
