Wow, what an incredibly beautiful and inspiring story. "Now I judge everything else by that simple happy feeling and won't ever give it away." Good for you!!!!!! That's exactly the secret and what we're all striving for. You rock :).
Thank you so much for sharing your story. You are NOT alone! And YAY for you helping others. It's all most of us can do to help with the trauma we have suffered.
What a strong and emotionally evoking testimony. Thank you so much for sharing your story here. You are an amazing person to have endured all of that and you have come out intact on the other side of it. Your words are beautiful and will speak to many people today. I can tell you I will never forget those words you said "happiness is the absence of feeling broken". I know I am still broken in some aspects but it is so encouraging to hear that it will dissipate one day. Thank you again for sharing your story.
Thank you for sharing this. Happiness is such a simple thing once you find it. Feels so elusive when you don't have it.
Geneva, I'm so sorry you went through all of this. Thank you for sharing your story here, so other survivors might take strength from yours.
Wishing you peace, now and in the future.
You have described this all so vividly and so well. Thank you so much for sharing your story. You will help more people than you know.
I have every, every confidence that your new peace will lead you to untold happiness. Your strength as a survivor is a great inspiration. Hugs to you and many thanks for sharing your story.
You're doing great! I can relate to the simple happy feeling you describe after cutting the grass. I haven't been able to move past the "simple happy" you describe, into relationships and more after leaving abuse behind. I think as time goes by there might be more to happiness for you (and me) - like a loving relationship with someone who adores you! Happy Valentine's Day!
