Who Are You?
Who am I? A question we all have to answer at some point on this journey called life. For me, it was a constant struggle finding out the answer. I struggled because I honestly did not know. I was pretending to be someone that I wasn’t; a person that had it all together. The TRUTH is, I pretended because I did not want to accept my past. I actually BLOCKED IT OUT. I am sure you can relate to this. Many of us block out our experiences so that we don’t have to face them. The part of my life I blocked out was my childhood.
My parents have been married for 30 plus years. They are both veterans of the United States Army. They are great parents and people! Even though they are my biggest supporters, my TRUTH is that I grew up in a household of substance abuse for 10 years. Not many people know this; I sat in this TRUTH a long time ago but kept it private. Why? Because my families TRUTH is not mine to share. However, my experience has equipped me to live the life I do now. I am free to make better choices and be a great role model to my children.
What are your thoughts on being comfortable being uncomfortable? I was uncomfortable for a very long time. However, today I see that speaking my truth not only has set me free from mental bondage, it will help someone else in their journey! My goal is to motivate others to sit in their TRUTH and to speak their TRUTH.
