Hey guys. Not even sure where to start. My brother died when we were kids and it left me in a bad head space which lead me to do some crazy shit. I was sexually abused by someone I was dating for 2 years, which lead to drug and alcohol abuse. After that I believed that sex = love and found myself in a series of horrible relationships. My first husband left a scar over my left eye as a constant reminder to not take people at face value. The next guy I dated tried to choke me to death. After a VERY BRIEF stay with my parents (I have a love/hate relationship with my monster, I mean mother) - my dad came to me and said that she told him to choose….one of us had to go. And he was married to her, so!
That honestly might have been one of the two times my father saved my life! I packed all of my things, got on a plane and moved to the East Coast. My second marriage last 19 years and almost killed me in the end - a “butt-dial” phone call from my ex and his mistress that I listened to for 52 minutes and took notes!
But the truth is, I wouldn’t change anything that has happened to me in this crazy thing called life, because if you change even one day - it changes who you are…and the person I have become, the woman I am today - is FUCKING AMAZING! So to all those that did me wrong and said I would never make anything of myself…Thank You!
