For years the statements above were my life story. It is what I told myself over and over again and only created more anger, resentment and rage inside of me. I was a victim to my own self sabotage, holding myself captive, pleading to anyone who would listen to save me. At first, I thought I was asking for saving from my horrible parents and life, but in retrospect I know now I needed saving from myself. I understand now that though what my parents did, others did and what happened to me was wrong, I was not letting go and I was allowing myself to constantly be hurt by the past. I kept pulling off the bandages and scabs and not allowing my wounds to heal.
Now, my wounds are healing are yes some may leave ugly scars but I am learning now to accept them. They are a part of my story but in a more positive way. They are the reason why I am who I am and why I am so passionate about my purpose and vision. I know why the caged bird sings…because it longs to be free/because nobody can take singing away from it/ because it does it so well. When I hear stories of resilience and perseverance like Maya Angelo, Oprah and Angela Davis just to name a few, I am so inspired! These woman turned their hate, hurt, wounds, scars into passion. They inspire me to do the same. I turned my hate, hurt, wounds and scars into something positive—I want to motivate and inspire others to find passion in their pain. I want to help others persevere and strengthen their resilient bones and overcome their obstacles and fears and pursue their passions and dreams.
