    With how the world has been treating my problems, it’s hard to tell anyone my story. I think it’s best for my story to remain a mystery than for it to be known

    Trauma can ruin lives and it all depends how one handles it.Each can not let it define them but that is a choice by those who suffer, We are all survivors in our own way, we all have a story, it is how we allow ourselves to shape our lives. Thank you for sharing this video...

    Talking to my inner child always makes me cry. I can be home or in public places it always makes me so sad. I just pray everyday to have my own family so that i can show her how happy we can be.

    Sometimes you have no choice. I didn't even know I was suffering until I collapsed. My therapist tells me the journey to wellness is going to take time, effort, and support. Once you have a handle on the trauma, then you can reshape it. But getting a trip takes help.

    This made me cry. I wasn't abused, but something terrible happened to me about 3 years ago and everyone thought I did something I didn't. I was in a lot of physical and mental pain and I couldn't talk about it because it was too embarrassing. Now as I grow older, It's becoming more and more relevant that I face it again. I'm scared and ashamed and I don't think I'm strong enough. I need help.

    Man I turned 40 this year and I am still struggling with my inner pain. I have never believed I could amount to something or felt worthy. I am still working on how to find myself to be ok with me. I think the largest impact on me has been never to have children. It scares me too much. I never seen justice and my step father walks around today free and it is me who is the liar, who tried to destroy an innocent mans life. That really pisses me off
