Welcome. This is a safe place.

Thank you so much for being here. I created this blog to help people feel like they are not alone. Since I started this journey I have received many comments and thank you emails for helping people understand we are all in this together. Complex Post-Traumatic Disorder, psychological abuse, emotional abuse, adverse childhood experiences, sibling bullying and gaslighting; these subjects I talk about. Peace.

I have come to the conclusion that human beings are born with an innate capacity to triumph over trauma. I believe not only that trauma is curable, but that the healing process can be a catalyst for profound awakening—a portal opening to emotional and genuine spiritual transformation.
