"I AM NOT A VICTIM"
2017 was probably my darkest, most scariest year. After being assulted I went through deep depression and till this day I am still to overcome anxiety. Doctors, counsellors and support workers had recommended me perscripted medication. I ate my pain away, I hid in my bedroom eating just to get through the day...i gained almost 10kgs in less than a year...I refused to intake drugs for I have a God that heals all sickness. My medication is prayer, prayers from family, friends and others around me. My cure was the love from our Heavenly Father, though I have turned my back on him and even at times lost faith...He has never abandoned me nor forsaken me. I AM NOT A VICTIM...I AM A SURVIVOR!!! The justice system failed NOT only me but our community, no wonder so many woman are so afraid to speak up. I WILL NOT BE SILENCED!! Going through what I had, has only made me stronger. It's made me realise the importance of family. No matter the situation and no matter how much we drifted a part, they will always be in my corner. Friends come and go but family is forever. I may have not got the outcome myself, the court and others that supported me wanted...due to the lack of evidence given to the jury...but i know my God was watching and only his judgement matters. Onwards and upwards from here

Watch your words, verbal abuse is emotional abuse, even though it's not physical, it's the emotional mental wounding that no one can see & harder to heal. The constant years of character assassination, intimidation, harassment & contempt of others shows inner suffering & negative self talk. When the abuser is actually abusing themselves & projecting outwards. Learn to understand the pain they are already inflicting towards themselves first before they lash out at others! May we love ourselves enough to disassociate from them, hope they seek help & walk away. Only HURT people hurt others. Happy people are happy for others & tolerant. No resentment or judgements or jealousy when we want the best for others. No haters on social media, only humans supporting each other's differences & respect for each other's journey in this short life . The abused needs to learn forgiveness, that's the hardest task because the abused can become the abuser too. Just because you are depressed, you don't need to drag others down with you. The saying that Misery loves Company is so true. Seek help & healing if you struggle to forgive, you will free yourself from yourself & find the peace that was always there!! I am Guilty & I will Own my shit!

New video posted on my Facebook page! This week I talked about why sharing your story matters. When we step into our vulnerability and share the truth of our story and who we are we give others a safe space to do the same. When we stand up and use our past to be better, no matter what we might have done or experienced, we give others hope that they can do the same. Do not allow anyone else's fears or insecurities to silence you. Stand in the power of your truth and your story, use it to be better and make the world better!
