Do you ever have one of those days where nothing seems to go your way? Maybe you feel like that's how your week has been. Or maybe the last month or year. I often find people saying that "2016" or "2017" just wasn't their year. It often feels like when it rains it pours and you just cannot catch a break.
I wanted to check in and connect. It feels like it has been forever. Sorry I have been somewhat MIA. I am working on some super great things that I can't wait to share with you!
Hint: As many of you know if you follow my blog, that my specialty is in working with Survivors of Sexual Abuse and their Loved Ones. This includes: parents, spouses, partners, friends, siblings, other family members, or any close relationship). Did you know that 1 in 5 people experience sexual abuse? That means that, often, you are in a room that includes a Survivor. But you may never know. This is often a hush hush topic, because it's uncomfortable. But in keeping this topic taboo, it is more difficult for Survivors to come forward, and they are suffering in silence. Friends, this is a major major issue and one that we should be talking about and advocating for.

"I am not good enough"
"I don't deserve to be loved"
"I am not strong enough"
"I am out of control"
"I don't deserve anything good in life"
"I can do better, be better"
