I am a woman who has struggled with knowing who I am and what I want out of Life.
I am a daughter who was neglected and sexually abused as a child and survived.
I am a sister who tried to be perfect and failed as protector of my younger siblings.
I am a wife who loves my kind and very patient husband as best I can with the intimacy scars that I still carry.
I am a mother who swore I would love and protect my own children from incest.
I am an incest survivor who shares my stories to offer hope, strength and healing to other survivors.
I am an incest survivor who refused to ever quit.
I am a wounded child who has learned to thrive as a loving, beautiful woman.
Because of the struggle with incest, I am strong and compassionate when I might not have been otherwise.
I am who I am because of the incest, not in spite of it.
Today I am a survivor and a thriver who loves my family, friends and my life.
I still struggle some days, but there is also laughter and joy in my life.
I still hurt and get angry at times but have also forgiven my abusers and myself.
I call my blog Spiritual Journey Of A Lightworker because my life has been a spiritual journey back to God and his love.
I call myself a Lightworker because we all, at our centers, are Light.
I choose to shine my Light to help others heal from the pain of child abuse.
If I can heal, I know that you can heal too.
Will you join me in letting your Light shine and helping someone else to heal?
We all are so much more than our experiences can define us as.
Let your Light shine for the world to see that united we stand to stop child abuse.
