I am known as a wife, mother, sister, and friend.
However, I am mostly unknown.
Inside, I am so much more.
I have been defined by loss, and by abuse, and betrayal from those I loved. Those who, at the time, knew parts of me better than I knew myself.
They knew I would remain silent, broken, and so easily their prey.
But not one of us knew how strong I really am. Maybe they did and it scared them. I am not sure.
This blog is my coming into my own. Embracing my own existence and voice. This is me without the fear to exist too.
I am a human being who loves and dreams and has her own thoughts and feelings that are not theirs. They belong to me.
This is me coming out of the darkness. Not just peeking from behind a cracked door.
I am opening the door . . .
