Is it time for More?

Is it time for More?

Some survivors are perfectionists, if they can’t do something perfect, they won’t do it at all. Some survivors are performance driven, working hard to convince everyone — including themselves — that they’re valuable. And some survivors play it safe, seeking to be invisible, often living smaller than they should. I want to focus on that […]

Rose Colored Glasses

Rose Colored Glasses

I really do own a pair of rose-colored glasses. When I’m wearing them, life looks great. Besides appearing quite fashionable, my surroundings become bright and cheery. Flowers are touched with hints of rose glow; the sky dusted with shades of pink radiance. I feel warm, at peace with the world, I am happy. Sounds nice […]

Discover Your Worth

Discover Your Worth

I smiled and said, “I will!” I was off to Arizona and when you live in Michigan, (otherwise known as the frozen tundra) any trip to warmer weather brings an envious response from those left behind.

Not Diminished

Not Diminished

Abuse made us feel small. We were over-powered; our voice was silenced, ignored. We learned during abuse that if we were quiet—played dead or stayed small—eventually the pain would end, the abuser would leave, and we’d survive one more time. But over time we’ve grown accustomed to being small. We’ve allowed ourselves to become emotionally […]

For Freedom’s Sake

For Freedom’s Sake

I didn’t recognize the address of the email, but the subject line intrigued me, “Is there ever freedom? Really?” I was perplexed — and saddened — as I read the despairing words typed from the disillusioned writer: “I’m a survivor of sexual abuse, I was abused by my father when I was 11. When I […]
