I MAKE A DIFFERENCE – My personal growth and self-facilitation journey
Simply put – I know the adventure. I have journeyed it. I have felt, then immersed myself in every emotionally painful aspect of myself, so that I faced all of it, to heal it. I worked with all the bizarre, fierce, scary and so powerfully judgmental thoughts I had, that consumed me, so that I found quiet. I have been rejected, abandoned, blamed, betrayed, beaten up, shamed, used, not valued by myself, let alone by others.
I have experienced not fitting in, being desperately lonely, depressed, isolated and lost. I have sunk to the bottom of the abyss purposely, to face what I knew I would, so that I could heal and unravel what I knew was not me and that which I no longer wanted to have a hold on me.
I have hoped, then believed and then known things would change, that I would find me, and be free of the restriction, strangulation of fear and dependency.
I have rediscovered my love, trust and value in myself. I found my true voice, and not my reactive voice. I found the gentleness, kindness and peacefulness within me that is natural to me.
And through all of this I have breathed, cried, yelled, laughed, fought, wanted to give up – but my soul was strong, bright and did not give up on me.
