Help comes in many forms.
Not just conventional therapy.
You are not what you survived.
You are much more than the sum of your experiences.
You have value.
The world needs people like you.
People who have been through terrible things.
People who have seen the worst in others.
People who KNOW that what happened to them was wrong.
There can be purpose to what you endured.
Purpose that can only be brought about by you.
Purpose that requires you to make a choice.
Purpose that can bring you and others healing.
Make another list.
A list of positives.
A list that shows Who You Really Are.
A list of accomplishments (the first that you survived).
A list of all that is good in you.
A list of all the good experiences you had with your son and others.
A list of positives will help get you away from thinking only negative.
A list of positives will help in bringing in more positives.
If you stay in the negative, the abusers still control you.
If you move toward the positive, you begin to take control of your own life.
As a child, you had no power.
As an adult, you get to take back that power.
Taking back that power starts with you making a choice.
A choice to heal.
To really heal.
I know you can do this.
I know you can do this because of what you've already gone through the worst of it.
I know you can do this because you're a survivor.
Now it's time to become a thriver.
Yes, it ends.
But only when you decide it must.
When you decide to see things from a different perspective.
When you decide to make changes in your own life.
Only YOU can do that.
Chelsea, I send you love, light and healing energy.
Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
