When I was a Junior in high school, I was raped by a man that I knew. It was the worst time in my life because I felt like my identity was ripped away from me. I didn’t know who I was for a long time. I battle constant demons in my head because of the ever lasting trauma it has left on me. To feel as if you don’t know yourself anymore, is the worst feeling ever. I felt like I was being someone that I wasn’t. I have since then gone to counseling and now want to become a voice for those who have gone through similar things I have. To know you’re not alone 🙂 My goal of this blog is help as many people as I can. I want to show that you can make amazing changes in your life to benefit who you are as a person. I want people to be able to say what they feel and what they struggle with because we all have our own personal battles and constant struggles everyday. To see the impact words can make can change lives forever! Don’t be afraid to speak up about your struggles. This is a no judgement free zone 🙂 You’re voice matters!
