Here is the space where I hear my heart beating, where it speaks, where it breaks and heals.

Here is a space to share my voice. A space to capture my silence. A space for my heart to be. Just be. A space for the words of my past, present and future to return and unfold as I learn who I was, who I am and who I will be.

Here I claim my silence. Here I claim my voice. 

Here are the things I wish you knew. 

Come in. You are welcome here…

  1. You are so right–writing, blogging, connecting all lead to the path of healing–whatever a person needs to heal from. Thank you for reaching out and connecting with and following my blog. I’m glad to find you on my path to healing, too. ❤

  2. You’re so absolutely right – you really cannot do this on your own. What happened to your old blog?

    I am in a place where I crave connection with others… but cannot seem to find it anywhere for the time being.

    • Just be you…connection will happen. My last blog has been taken down – it was in a pseudonym but this was found by some people I really didn’t feel safe to have reading it. Some of my previous writing will feature on here no doubt though. Thanks so much for reaching out 💜 xx


      • Great, it’s wonderful to craft something that you feel is the “real you”. Even though I blog anonymously (which I hope won’t be the case forever), I love the sense of cohesion I get when I look at my blog, and the insights I have had are so representative of the various times in my life where I had them.

        It’s sad that we don’t feel we can truly be ourselves and just say what we feel, to hell with whoever reads it, but that is life, there’s always some compromise and self-disclosure is never total, even with those we love.

  3. I isolated until agoraphobia was the destination PTSD journeyed into my life.

    You can heal, reconnect, and eventually support others on their path, it happened to me. Good healing

      • Gratitude and giving, both to others but first to oneself are very valuable traits, emotions.

        Give to yourself, never say or entertain a negative thought it judgment about you

        You are perfect as I and all of us.

        We journey together not apart it competing

        Took me a while to find this truth

  4. I too blog anonymously. I do not want my husband to find any of my thoughts. He’s been noisy in so many other areas of my life and gets mad when I want a little privacy to have my own thoughts. I understand how you may feel. I am glad that you are writing again. You are right, we are not meant to do this all on our own. We are a big family. Thank you for honoring me with a follow. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Meghan

  5. Writing saved my life. Truly. When I couldn’t talk, I could write. When the real me was hovering above me, just out of reach, I could write and bring her closer – at least so she was in sight. Now, I write to stay present. Not always about trauma and my healing journey (I wrote an entire book about that), but to keep myself whole. The journey is hard, and also worth it. I look forward to reading more about yours.

    • Thank you for joining me here Audrey. Writing saved your life – wow, I love hearing this. I think writing repeatedly saves my life. And yes…I think I am most present when I write too. I fell away from it for a while, or began to hide maybe, but I’m trying to accept its healing power back in my life. 💜
