Today: I’m a survivor of a lifetime of abuse. My greatest asset is my open heart and willingness to be mindful of others struggle. Nothing came easy. It hasn’t changed; it hasn’t been easy being me. I work daily to become a better person. A person who can make you smile. A person that sees and hears you. My greatest reward comes from knowing I’ve made a difference in you day. This is my purpose for living. Often alone I struggle to live, to be seen, to be heard. I know the pain that comes with that life.
