Jewels, Gems & Gunpowder

I would love to hear from you! Sharing Saturday with you.

A Jewel: When a survivor of incest comes out about the abuse, what happens most often is they lose the family they were born or adopted into. That is not easy and stops many of us from sharing our pain, talking about the agony, and learning to overcome the darkness.

New traditions helped me on my journey to freedom. Most of us cherish family traditions. When we lose family, whether good or bad, we lose family connection and family traditions. That’s not easy. So, I created a habit of starting new traditions with my girls. After I divorced their father after 17 abusive years, I had to start some new traditions all over again. And, it works.

Never give up. Never give in. Just start creating again.

A Gem: Finding your “tribe” as they now say isn’t easy when you’ve come from severe childhood difficulties. You don’t trust. People don’t know what to do with your story. They shut you down or offer some lame sympahty. Where and how do we find each other?

I am hopeful that each day I write these words, I find another little piece of you that can come by us, stand with us in truth and healing, and live just a little bit freer than you did yesterday.

Metaphorical Gunpowder: I am firm on the conviction of who I am. I will not give that right back to anybody. I believe in myself.

Please comment below by leaving your jewel, a gem or something you keep yourself free from with metaphorical gunpowder.

All love!
