GERANIUM SOUL…what the heck is that?! Well, it’s now my official, online journal where I will share my personal journey of overcoming childhood sexual, physical & emotional abuse. This horrible injustice touches the lives of everyone. It’s either happened to you, someone you love, or someone you know. Lives are forever altered (like mine). My purpose is to “shout from the rooftops” that while abuse brings ruinous damage – it does not have to define you or rule your life. There is still a beautiful, full life to be lived! I’m not gonna lie sharing my story is a little scary for me, but I know it’s time. Past time really, and I’m anxiously, terrified to begin. So let’s begin…
The thoughts and words written in this blog come directly from my life – written as a collection of short stories. Some might be difficult to read and not meant to attack, harm or embarrass anyone – only to tell my truth. Throughout the years I’ve attended counseling, spent countless hours learning about abuse and recovery, and aggressively, pursued God through the help of the Holy Spirit. I am not an expert on this topic, but I hope my experiences will bring some insight, perspective and hope.
