I've been working on writing my story for many years now and I think I have finally found a space spiritually to concur my fears of being exposed to the world. I have been struggling with the though that people will read my story and somehow I as an individual I would disappear... I would be another statistic not Talie. After taking the time to share this with an amazing survivor whom have already walked this path I now know that these are very common fears and concerns for anyone who shares something difficult.
I don't want to be afraid of moving forward. I want to be able to face my fears with confidence that I'm staying true to myself and the path that I want to walk in not only sharing my story but in how I heal on a daily basis. I'm overwhelmed with emotions at times and to be 100% truthful I don't always know why... I know this journey is going to help me grow as a person and I still struggle with the sudden lack of self confidence that can take over in a moments notice.
One of my greatest fears in this process is that I'm only going to be seen as a "victim" of childhood sexual assault (Rape). I don't want to be a victim, I want to be a person... a woman... a strong woman who has defied the odds and survived! I am not a victim... I am a STRONG SURVIVOR!
I really need to be on top of writing to achieve my goals of publishing... I also need to be far more open to the people around me in my life in this process... I'm commenting here and now to sharing what I have written thus far with someone I trust within 48 hours! No more procrastination!
Thanks for reading and being apart of this journey with me! God Bless!
