It’s why I started Heal Her Heart to begin with. Because 1) Me too. 2) I understand, can sympathize and empathize with various forms of abuse. 3) I realized my purpose relatively early which led to me dedicating my entire life and all of my energy to developing tools, platforms, and programs for women who have had similar/the same experiences as myself; and learning all that I can (personally and through school) to not only benefit me in my journey towards healing, but to assist other women in the process of theirs. I’ve survived sexual abuse on more than one occasion starting early in my childhood, complications with pregnancy and abortion, and unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) I could share a lot on unhealthy relationships. Maybe I can say this now because I’m in a better place within myself, mentally, and physically: but I wouldn’t change anything about my past. Despite it being the main reason why at times I struggle with anxiety/depression, opening up, at times personal relationships (intimate, friendships, and trust), adversity is also my catalyst. It’s my pain that has taught me how to live, survive, and most importantly it laid the foundation for me to start and continue Heal Her Heart. If you take a look at the story sharing platform on Heal Her Heart you’ll see: you’ll see how women who have been at their lowest point found their way right back to their highest. You’ll see women who lost every thing they’ve ever had find happiness in what they have now and what stands out the most is reading and understanding just how resilient women can truly be.
So yes, me too. If you’ve posted “Me Too” recently, thank you for reaffirming I’m not alone in this and reminding me that all of us women are in this together.
