As I write each word, I can feel myself get mentally lighter and lighter. As a child I was always wrote little poems and stories. I was a child filled with imagination!
As I grew throughout the years, there was a point where the pen couldn’t keep my attention. As a result of displacing my passion, I dove into drugs and eventually sinking further into a world of illegal sex trafficking (which is just a fancy word for prostitution).
Hiw did I even get to that place? I was raised with such high morals and my parents instilled manners and hard work into me at a young age.
I was sinking further and further into a abyss of drugs,sex and criminal activity. Never displaying adverse behaviors to my parents nor anyone in my family for that matter, I thought I was getting slick. But reality was, I was getting worse.
Lending my body to anyone with a large amount of cash became my quest in life that is until I gave birth to my oldest child.
Life was brand new after that. Of course i had ups and downs for a few years after she was born but eventually I sought help from a therapist for my PTSD. And low and behold she said the best therapy is to ….WRITE!
Thats when I picked up the pen again and wow was my heart full! I wrote 3 best selling books and I’m still writing. It’s like something magical happened and everything began to come together and my anxiety and fears began dissipating and I felt like I was living now.
I still suffer from some anxiety and other emotions but anytime I feel overwhelmed or heavy, my release is I write. And I don’t stop until I feel better. So thank you for letting me share a piece of my pain with you and not judging me on my past but propelling me into my best future!
