Introspection — what better way to start a week.

Question: Do you envy people who had protective parents?

I do. Then, I remind myself I don’t and will not ever know differently. Or will I?

Father God tells me time and time again in his love letter written to us all that his love never fails and always protects.

I believe that. I guess I do have a protective parent.

I would love to hear from you! Sharing Saturday with you.

A Jewel: Struggle. Struggle is a gift. Without struggle we would stay the same, wouldn’t we?

A Gem: Do you know how to walk away from a destructive childhood? Follow someone that came through it and is on the other side.

Metaphorical Gunpowder: I am NOT the experience I came through. The scars I carry represent courage.

Please comment below by leaving your jewel, a gem or something you keep yourself free from with metaphorical gunpowder.

All love!

On the discussion of fear — Do you fear success?

I was a good daughter. To be a good daughter in the house I grew up in meant I had to allow myself to be brutalized — a lot. I had to accept that I was not loved and smile anyway. I had to hide my downcast inner being and show up happy, to make the beasts around me happy. And, I was good at it. I needed their acceptance — I thought. What else did I know.

That was what success in my family of origin looked like.

I left there not liking success very much.

Do you fear success?

Your secret is known. I will teach the children you hurt to talk. You will be found out. God is watching. He is the witness to each crime you have committed against a child.

I am going to spend my life telling my story and teaching others that were hurt by you to tell their story.

There is a shift in power coming against you. We will stand. We will talk.

Your secrets will be known.

We write openly about our sexual childhood abuse, not only because we need to express but because we want to shine some light on this difficult healing path.
