Healing and Coming Full Circle…

      Comments Off on Healing and Coming Full Circle…


In March 2014, I went to my 30th high school reunion, and it had a bigger impact on me than I realized.

This is a major brick on the road of my healing journey! Here is where it all started!

The birth of part 1 of My Life, My Soul, Surviving, Healing and Thriving After an Abusive and Relationship.

I remember being a junior in high school and sitting in the cafeteria by myself during lunch seething, because my boyfriend/future husband hit me for the first time. The emotions are all coming back, and with all the things I was mad at him about, not one thought was about myself. How I didn’t deserve that type of treatment, or how my self esteem was so low as a teen that the moment he said he was sorryfor hitting me, I forgave him.

As I’m staring out of the window, looking at how Brooklyn has grown, changed and progressed since I ran these halls 30 years ago, I too realize that I have grown, changed and progressed.
