Tag: Family Abuse

I’m proud to be the White Sheep in a dysfunctional (bio) family

Last week, I had an interesting phone call. It was from a person that was pretending to care about me and my healing journey. It was odd but expected. I didn’t entertain his judgements. As a matter of fact, it was easy to deflect…

Dear Spirit, Thank you for being

Dear Spirit, Thank you. This season has been one of the biggest challenges I’ve ever embraced. It was bigger than climbing corporate ladders. It was scarier than moving to a new country. It was emotionally, mentally, and spiritually destabilizing… There were moments when I…

The brainwashing continues… I AM WORTHY

It’s been about a month. A month of silence for my blog anyways. I’ve been very active on other social media platforms but have shied away from my blog because I needed some time and space to divide and conquer. When I purge emotions…

VisualDNA: My neuroticism‚Äč is 16%

#MentalHealthAwarenessMonth ¬† As part of my rewiring process, I took a life coaching course. This course is covering a bunch of stuff that I consider basic but it’s almost as if I am learning myself for the first time. At the moment, I know…

Healing Overdrive: Understand – Accept – Let Go
