Warning: graphic and honest!
I am many things: a bellydancer, a cat & dog mom, a boho gypsy, a champion of women, a nature hippie chick, lover of life and I am also a cutter. Yes, as much as I’ve focused on healing my past traumas and abuse, I still struggle with self harm. This started long ago. My Father used to burn me with cigars. God bless his soul, he suffered much in his life; finding his own Mother at sixteen after she committed suicide.
We all struggle with finding our way out of the dark forest. We all must blaze our own trail out of where we can become lost. What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. I truly believe that we must find our own way out of the dark forest. Together. I find solace and strength in other women who have turned adversity into their own brand of resilience, magic and outrageous moxy.
Here is to those women who inspire us, who have walked through fire, who don’t ever forget that they are a Goddess.
Here is to us who are still suffering, reaching for the light, for our own strength to change. To find a way to let the past become truly the past and forage our own way to becoming who we were born to be.
