I want my story to be told.
I want to expose my past to myself and to the world. I feel like that’s the way to freedom. That’s they way to true acceptance and courage.
I must share my story with the world so that others may learn from my experience and won’t suffer any more like I have.
No one deserves to go through this kind of pain.
I realize the more I hide and the more I deny the reality of what I experienced and continue to experience, I perpetuate the cycle of suffering in this world.
Woman and Men continue to feel pain, unless I stand up and use my voice.
My fear of self shame and rejection is already pushing me down, limiting me more than I could imagine if only I spoke up.
I punish myself worse than any other person could. I know my weak spots and I poke and prod them until they get infected and ooze.
I realize the disservice I do to myself and others. I’m ready for a shift, and I must be authentic and vulnerable in order to do so.
The time is now.
