About last night…. As i mentioned in a earlier posts I will be holding small private womens group that I will call: Lets talk vulnerably once a week(possibly more) in a secret location. My vision is to help and create a connection, that will strengthen and give courage,though vulnerability. These groups are intended for us to come together and speak vulnerably about subjects that scare us. My mission is to pull strength from these women and empower them, and then they can empower each other.
Last night i held my first session. To be honest I didn’t really know what to expect. I just knew i could help. The girls started coming in(4 total). They started by introducing themselves and what brought them to this circle. We all listened closely as each of these women talked about their lives.Their stories blew my mind! One women, mother of 6, who was sexually molested at 4, pregnant and married by 16 and raped at 19, who also had a child from that encounter. Another who at such a young age has already taken on the world, who has a alcoholic brother, going to school, and working 2 jobs, and feels like she needs to do more. What she failed to see she was doing more then she realized. She needed be told that she is giving as much as she could, and that she is enough. One of these beautiful ladies gets emotional, more often then she wants. She distances herself from her family and lost the love of her life 6 years ago...he was only person she felt like she could be herself around. And last but certainly not least, one said she had her son at 18, landed this career she is in now, that makes great money, but she is unhappy. By creating a safe place we talked openly about these private and intimate topics. We learn to heal by others words. They give us ideas, by not hiding these issues under a rug and bringing them to the surface. Learning not to forget about our issues, but how to deal by accepting what we cannot change.
We talked for 3 hours! I left these girls with one of the most empowering feelings I have ever felt! I truly feel like this is my purpose! I feel like I am just touching the surface to something huge!❤️ ps. Yes, that's a dogs head🐶 #losangeles
