I started this blog back in May as a place to store very personal stories about myself. I shared these stories as a dare from God and my therapist.
Throughout this journey, I’ve learned how much shame and hurt I was carrying inside, I’ve become more aware of my feelings, and I’ve started to take them more seriously. I’ve learned more about my likes, my dislikes, and what behaviors I’m willing and unwilling to accept from others. I’ve also learned how to appreciate the good relationships that I have, and most importantly I’ve learned how to forgive – others and myself. I’ve become a better version of me.
When I first started sharing my stories, I had no idea where this would take me. I hoped once I shared all the worst stories about myself, I would be done. But guess what? Life has kept happening, relationships have continued to fall apart, and I’ve continued to experience some great disappointments.
So…on Thursday, January 5, 2017, I will continue sharing my experiences with you.
Thank you for reading my stories. Thank you for encouraging me to keep writing. Thank you for messaging me and calling me with your own horror stories and for reassuring me that we all have them. Thank you for sharing this journey with me. Thank you for helping me process my pain.
See you in January!!
