Remember you are strong and I love you all!

Nothing can dim the light which shines from within

Maya Angelou

I truly believe this quote to be true! Thank you to all of you for all of your recent support on here. I truly appreciate it. You’ve all been so amazing! What would I do without you all! I am forever grateful for the kindness and support you’ve shown us!

I want to let you all know you are all warriors, you are strong! Keep trucking on! When you think you cant, you can! You can do this! I believe in you! Have faith, because things always work out!

Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained

Marie Curie

I love you all!

Go within every day and find the inner strength so that the world will not blow your candle out

Katherine Dunham

If they hadn’t told me I was ugly, I never would have searched for my beauty. And if they hadn’t tried to break me down, I wouldn’t know that I’m unbreakable.

Gabourey Sidibe


Have a great day everyone!


Do what is in your heart, healing quote for Saturday

One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn’t do.
Henry Ford

Never be afraid to do anything. You can do it, you got this. Fear holds us back, but if we take the first step, and do what is in our heart, fear will disapate.
Be brave, be courageous!

To little 7 year old me,

Im sorry you have to be hurt. I know your scared. I know people are constantly hurting you. Stay strong. Things will get better. You just have to hope, keep on hoping. Never ever give up hope that things will change. Because, they will.
I want you to know, I love you. You are brave and strong. You have to be, I know that. But you are a fighter. You never gave up hope that things would change.
I love your determination. I love your tonasity. I love your strength. I love your courage. You are a brave little girl.
Always remember there are people who care. They are there, even when it seems there’s no one there. They are there, and they will come help you out when times get rough.
There are very kind people. Like that student social worker. Like that staff member who treated you with respect and like you were a somebody. They are there.
Remember I am here too. I will always protect you. I will always love you. Remember to reach out if you need to. Dont go it alone. Reach out and get the help you deserve and remember, your a very special and courageous person.
Your grown up self


i am brave

Our therapist eileen says i am brave. dr. barry says I am brave. why?

I am brave because I trusted them, I allowed them in.

I am brave because when it felt unsafe, I talked anyway.

I am brave because I have learned to let others in to my world.

I am brave…but yet I don’t feel it today.

Today I feel insecure and very vulnerable.

I need my therapist, I want to reach out, will I be brave and reach out to her?

I don’t know. Only time will tell.
