I Have Healed And Im Proud

I hear the story of each and every one of you. I was one of you. As long as I can remember I was molested by my father and brothers. The state knew of the abuse and did nothing to prevent it. I remember every painful moment of my abuse from the time I was 2. I was placed with my aunt and uncle at 5 and then back with my father at 10. I was abused mentally physical and sexually for years. Then when I was 17 my father beat me so bad I had welts covering my back. The state finally removed me from his home. My life has always been a struggle since but I have learned a very valuable lesson out of all the pain. I have three wonderful children now and I do everything to make their lives wonderful. I have learned to face my fears and although I will never have trust or love for my father I can proudly say, I'm not afraid. I broke the chain, I love me for me, the abuse did not make me I made myself! BE PROUD OF YOURSELF IF YOU HAVE BROKEN THAT CHAIN. FOR THAT IS WHAT WILL HEAL THE PAIN.

I am a child abuse as well as a domestic violence survivor, and a mother of a sexually abused child. I am writing a book about ALL types of abuse to let others know they are not alone in their struggle. <br />
<br />
If you are a SURVIVOR of any type of abuse , please use my book as a platform to share your testimony. Your entry can be up to 1500 words and you may use your real name or remain anonymous. <br />
<br />
I am giving authors who share a personal experience a book, providing they pay for the delivery. (If I do an e-book there will be no delivery charge.) Writing is a great tool in the healing process and your entry will help pave the way for others to leave the shadows of their silence. <br />
<br />
My book will be going to the editor in a few weeks and I am doing a courtesy check incase you may be interested. <br />
<br />
While we will never totally eliminate abuse, it is possible to lessen the victim population by this simple equation. Education + Awareness = Prevention. With this is mind I hope you will join the many other survivors and organizations that are joining me in their quest. <br />
<br />
I hope you will help. Thank you for taking the time to read and consider my request. I look forward to your response.<br />
