Excerpts from “The Awakening”

A time comes in your life when you finally get it…when, in the midst of all your fears and insanity, you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out, “Enough!” Enough fighting and crying or struggling to hold on. And, like a child quieting down after a blind tantrum, […]

The Good Life

The good life. What is it exactly? Easy street. Where is that located? Living the life. Whose life? I got so many mixed messages when I was younger that answering these questions has taken me 50 years. What I have learned is that the answer is different for each individual. What’s the good life? For […]

I’m Gay and I Made A Choice

I discovered that I liked looking at girls at the tender age of 8 when I was sitting with a neighborhood boy, in the shed of our backyard, looking at my father’s collection of Playboy magazines.  My father caught us and I was severely beaten with a belt until he drew blood.  He didn’t punish […]

A New Perspective

Born into an alcoholic home, all my life I dreamed of escape. Escape from abuse, escape from relationships, and escape from living in secret. In my dreams, I was free to travel, live openly, and free to just be me. In my adult life I made it my mission to escape all the trappings of […]

Oprah Winfrey says, “What you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it.”  I have found this to be true in the life I have built since I finished therapy in 2011. It has been about 10 years since I had contact with my abusers. […]

They Aren’t Just Words

November 9th, 2016 I was traumatized. My country elected a self-expressed predator to the White House! I couldn’t believe it! I thought we had come so much further as a nation, as a people. I thought we were finally coming together as one and turning to Love. As a survivor of extreme childhood abuse, I […]

Fostering Communication Using Scales

Early childhood trauma has affected every aspect of my life but one of the hardest to overcome has been communication.  I have difficulty really discerning what someone means.  I have always questioned the meaning behind what was said, not to mention the mood of the person or the tone that they use.  This is not […]
