This blog contains my perspective on issues we face in today’s world, within relationships, and in our daily lives with the end goal of bringing light into darkness and how to ultimately live in peace throughout it all!
My mission is to share my knowledge and wisdom that I have acquired through my life’s many trials and challenges, especially from the past ten years. I have reaped the fruit of my labor (Psalm 128:2) through wise choices made with my Christian values in different aspects of my life.
I am a two-time cancer survivor, a mother of a child who also survived cancer, and a survivor of a brutal narcissistic battle with an extended family member whom we all loved – all within the past ten years.
None of it has been easy, but with each trial, I have become stronger and more courageous. I have found my voice. I no longer feel the need to be a people pleaser that the empath in me thought was a requirement in order for others to like me.
I am a work in progress. I live a life of gratefulness, despite the many trials I have faced. I have a beautiful family and a wonderful husband who has stood by my side throughout the emotional pain of my daughter’s cancer and my own physical and emotional pain of cancer.
After successful triumphing over cancer and eager to start our new lives in remission, a narcissistic battle, the likes of which we were not prepared for, infiltrated our family and our home bringing emotional pain to our family that was indescribable. Unable to understand the intentional pain someone we loved could inflict on me and our family with no remorse was something I could not process for many years. It took a huge toll on my self-esteem and my confidence, shattered long-standing relationships and opened up a new level of emotional scars within us all.
Thankfully, I serve a God who provides. He led me to life-changing information providing all the answers to our never-ending question, “Why?”
As I began to be well versed on the topic, I finally found the validation I was longing for and I found my peace. What had happened to me and my family was never about us. With each article I perused, the commonality with each article’s writer could not be denied. I found myself in awe as I read the words detailing similar encounters and realized I could have written them verbatim. Had it not been for God leading me to this information, I would still be wrecked emotionally and filled with utter confusion, but I am not. I am once again whole and emotionally healed with knowledge and experience behind me to now equip others to begin their healing.
I am not, have never been, and will never be a victim.
I give God the glory for waking me up through the trials He has allowed to enter my life! He has always provided me with what I needed. He has given me eyes that see and ears that hear through His prompting to seek Him in my darkest days for answers only He can provide. He continues to mold me into who He wants me to be with each trial I face.
I believe He is using me to plant seeds in others through the lessons I’ve learned through the difficult trials I have endured, the choices I’ve made, the faith I’ve kept, and the amazing, wonderful peaceful outcome in my life. I have chosen to become better, not bitter!
Thank you for allowing me to share my perspective. It is incredibly therapeutic for me to write about my life experiences.
This page is anonymous due to the nature of some of the posts. I wish to tell my story to other survivors who can relate and who are in need of emotional assistance from someone who has gone through it – and survived, not continue to fuel a raging fire that still has not gone out.
I hope I can help you see a new perspective in the trials you are facing or may face in the future through my blog. If it helps you in any way, I ask that you share it and follow me. Please feel free to leave me a comment with any questions or encouragement to make this a better blog.
You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
