A Brave, True Story – Memoir

What is your secret story about violence in relationships?

A Brave, True Story is mine. For many years, it made me lower my head in guilt and shame. I kept it buried deep in my soul. The stigma associated with violence and sexual abuse were powerful enough to quieten my story for many years. And yet, telling this crucial story transformed my life from simply doing the motions of life to embrace life with my heart wide open.

What is the story you keep buried deep in your soul?

As an adult, I repeated the patterns I had learned as a child and stayed in emotionally abusive and manipulative relationships. I didn’t know any better.

What patterns do you have that prevent you from experiencing true love?

When my second relationship failed, I had the choice to either stay single for the rest of my life out of fear and frustration and allow my past to dictate my future or to heal myself. I decided to heal myself. In this honest, true story, I now share my experiences about healing violence in relationships. It’s my journey to become a happier and stronger woman who is proud of her scars. I invite you to read my story as a turning point for your journey.

Are you ready to change your life?

There are still too many women (and men) who hide their experiences for fear of what someone else will think or say about them. Whatever happened to you, you are not alone and nothing can destroy your worthiness and dignity. Finding true love and a fabulous relationship isn’t a matter of luck, it’s a journey that starts within yourself. You have the choice to open your heart, learn and grow and liberate yourself from the negative impact of your past.

Are you ready to take this choice?

I hope that my story will empower you to face your shadow, heal your heart and become the whole remarkable woman (or man) who resides within you. My intention when I wrote the book was to empower you to become whole and move forward into a happier and brighter future where a new world of relationships awaits you.
