You found a way to use the terrible life you endured to help others; that's turning pain into power. Sometimes it's necessary to physically distance our Selves from our families, especially when they are toxic and detrimental to our safety and health. You did what was necessary for your survival. You are a thriver. If there comes a time when you are haunted in any way by what you endured as a child, I do hope you'll seek out some form of counselling or therapy in order to help you deal with the fallout. Thank you for sharing your story and all-important message with my visitors and me, and for your service.

ENCOURAGE
by: Rita M

I am happy to know that you made your escape.
You have found peace in yourself.I am impressed that you sew dresses and send them to the 3rd world countries.I am a seamstress and have not been sewing for sometime.I am interested in sewing
again and maybe should try the same thing.I used to put childrens pj's on the Flee Market.I was known as the flannette lady at the fabric store.
It is certainly a relief to sew.It is my time of peace and a tranquil moment when I sew.I am greatful for your encouragment for sharing that you sent dresses to the 3rd world.You are an amazing person with such strength.I am impressed
because you did not let this abuse follow you.You
took authority over it and helped others.It is rare for me to hear of such a thing.I was also abused.I sought councelling as well as sewing and
covered all aspects of peace.It has taken years
for me to be set free in everything and am now stable.If you ever need to reach out and ask for
help it is there for you.You did not desreve this abuse.I carried the anger for such a long time and
finally let go because it isn't worth keeping it inside of me.I replace it with better things that gave me peace and have also helped others out.I wanted to have peace in every way possibe.It feels
great to be free and happy.You are definetly an inspiration and encourage you to keep on going.
Thankyou for sharing your story.

MY JOURNEY
by:

you can go to dress a girl around the world.com it has helped me to feel that I can't change the childhood I had, but I can make a difference to these girls lives. It took me many years to face all of my childhood fears. I have made myself a whole complete person, it took many years to heal that little girl inside who only wanted a safe home, to live, grow and dream. A lady in Santa Cruz, Ca took my hand and walked beside me for 15 years as I healed from the childhood abuse, I wanted to do something to pass on the caring and time she devoted to my life,the best way I could do this is to pass it on to others the same caring as she gave to me. Thank you Sharon for showing me my life was worth it. No matter what we each face in life we have a choice how we will embrace it, I used my experience as a opportunity instead of a liability. I wanted to show the world that you can break free if you have the determination want a life free of abuse, it's not easy, it's a lot of hard work, in the end when you hold peace in hand for that first time you will have found a treasure to pass on to the world. I look at myself today I feel proud of who I am, what I have become. The joy I feel inside when I see the glow in a child's eyes wearing a dress I made for her, it makes that long journey I have walked a treasure.
