I am the blessed mother of four beautiful daughters and grandmother to the most precious grandchildren on the planet; I am well aware that I may be a bit biased. I was in an abusive marriage for over 20 years and did not tell anyone for 18 of those 20 years. Ultimately, I won sole custody with no contact. My daughters are all now grown, beautiful and happy adults. I have been happily married to my soulmate.
As a result of my background, I have been helping people who have gone through what I did for two decades. Last year my daughter recommended that I start a Facebook group so I could reach more people to help, so I did. And, boy was she right! The group has exploded and I have come to realize how many wounded people there are in this world, myself included.
A few months after I started my Facebook group, this program fell on my lap. I believe it to be a gift from God. I often tell people that I had no idea how dysfunctional I was and, once in the program, all I could see was dysfunction all around me.
Through this program, I have learned so much about myself. I, literally, did not know what I did not know. Being a survivor of domestic violence, I often worried how my daughters would be affected by the abuse they witnessed and endured from their father. Never did I imagine that I would have a part in the dysfunction that they witnessed. As a mother, everything I did, I did because I loved them. However, I now know that most of us come from dysfunction.
I thought my dysfunction came from my abusive marriage. Soon upon entering this program, I came to realize that my dysfunction started long before my abusive marriage; it came from my childhood. You see, my mother was schizophrenic. Growing up, I knew that was not very common but it was all I had ever known. It was my normal.
I can honestly say that I had two parents that loved me. They did the best they could with what they had. It, literally, was nobody’s fault. I can now see generations back and see the dysfunction that my loved ones experienced.
I feel as though this certification has given me a whole new set of eyes AND the possibility of complete healing from my emotional trauma. I have often said that this program has given me the best inheritance that I will ever be able to leave for my children and grandchildren and beyond. I believe every human being can benefit from this program.
This is just a snippet of my story. I look forward to meeting you and getting the opportunity to know you and to hear your life story. I believe we were all put on this planet for a very important reason and I look forward to walking along side you as you embark on your own self-discovery.
