I always talk about people seeing my scars - my physical wounds and automatically infer that I have been through something traumatic. This is true, however, the reality is my mental & emotional recovery was much more challenging. Those are the wounds that aren’t visible to everyone or weren’t even to myself for years. There are many of us, walking around with internal wounds and scars that you cannot see. These wounds whether visible or not, affect us all so very deeply. Join me this Sunday, 2/23 in my interview with @jordannalyce and her free online series: “Triumph After Trauma: How to move beyond sexual trauma with renewed self-esteem, empowerment, and excitement for life”, to hear what steps and tools I used on my personal healing journey.
