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.
