I come from a family of betrayal, lies, deceit and abuse. It has been very traumatizing for me. My health, financial and mental situation suffered greatly however, I never gave up but on some level I did; It depends on your perspective. It seems the harder I tried the deeper I sunk into the quicksand. As you can see, I'm still here working to make a difference for myself. No! I didn't graduate from High School or College but I'm a student of life, had very unique experiences on multiple levels of things. Somethings aren't meant for everyone to know. Sometimes I have to listen more than I speak. In some ways silence is golden. In some ways silence dangerous. It's up to me to decide what's okay and what's not okay to speak about. As far as me helping others when I can is to help them find their own way and their own knowing and beliefs. My job is to be supportive, listen and if we can come up with ideas to help that's fine. I'm not an expert in the eyes of society but as a person who has had a lot of experience is a different story. I'm a loving person who had a lot of experiences but not every experience. My heart is open to those who wants someone to listen and understand without judging, although I do have to use my judgment to make the best decisions. Good advice isn't me telling someone what to do but to help come up with ideas and hopefully solutions, after all we're all learning together whether we realize it or not! We never stop learning no matter how old we are. I love you even when I don't know you. Love is what I feel I am because I'm so full of it. Love to me holds all the elements both good and bad. It's just your perspective of it. Life teaches things in many ways, though many people and situations. Dare to be different or just do something you love!
