So, last night I shared a deeply personal part of my story in a private online group. I was surprised at the love and support I got not to mention the encouragement. And a lot of people called me brave for sharing.
Today I was on my way to a few yard sales and ended up getting braver and spontaneously driving to find Interact and then parking in front of Bailey’s…when I had intended to get a cupcake at the bakery next door. I ended going into Bailey’s, getting braver still and sharing my story with an old friend and a jeweler I met there who showed me some gorgeous eternity bands and I discovered one that self and I both love. Me apparently has no opinion. And they didn’t think I was weird for asking self aloud what she didn’t like about the different rings.
Bravest will come this coming week. I am planning on going to Interact to talk to someone about my rape and see how I can help other people heal from their experiences.
I’m so close to a brand new life…chipping away at the old to make way for the new…one brave baby step at a time.
