If you are like me, you have been through an unbelievable year. For me, the past four years have been transformational. There have been so many moments, hours, days, weeks, and even years where I barely understood what was happening. However, I continued to work hard and give to others while ignoring my feelings and suppressing my one strong voice. As I have said to many people, “My resilience almost killed me.”
If you are here with us, you have decided that the life you have created, one that marginalizes you and your worth, is not a life worth living for another day. Like you, I made a life for myself based on the pain and trauma of my childhood.
I did not wake up one day and say, “Let me attract every single person who will give me nothing, who will shut down my creativity, who will damage my self-esteem, and who will disempower me at almost every opportunity.
Instead, I thought that I was making good choices. I thought that by “playing the game of perfection, ” I would achieve happiness, peace, and purpose.
My story defies any rational explanation. However, when I share my story, I suspect each of you will see yourself in my experiences. Many of you will have “aha” moments because my life is your life, in a different package.
I want to say that you are in this place because we are supposed to be together. We are here to talk, share, discuss, learn, heal, and celebrate.
You are everything.
Together, we are the miracle.
