Publisher's Summary

When I started writing a blog over ten years ago, I never dreamed, I would be sharing so much of myself in my own posts. I mostly thought, it would have bits about my life, or the news of current events. Instead, I found it a safe place to put all my fears, and insights that I discovered, while practicing yoga, meditation, reading spiritual books. It morphed into difficult memories of the stages of healing from a childhood of sexual abuse.

The beginning of writing the blog, was perhaps the most difficult. I felt a lot of the similar feelings of the sexual abuse I endured as a child. My words would come out fast and choppy. I could feel my fingers and body shake as I relived each moment, through the typing of the keys, and writing the blog posts. It was another way of telling my story, while safely releasing the toxic wounds, from within my body, mind, and soul. I never knew, in advance, what words would come to me, that would trigger a blog post.

Sometimes it was a song, a distant memory, or a longing for a connection to myself that was tucked away deep inside my memories. I just knew that it had to come out on a blog and into reality in order to start the healing process.

Courageous, realistic healing.

Not a "You'll be healed by taking a bubble bath," story, this book speaks the truth about feelings that we all have. Feelings that we can't always identify, or haven't given ourselves permission to own. It's a realistic method of healing from childhood sexual abuse and many of the domino effects of it-some of it painful in its truths, and all of it with unending determination to pull those thorns out. And all told with transparency. A good lesson in that it shows us that in order to get to the core of our issues, we must be honest in every aspect during the telling of our own stories. This is one man's experience of having grown from victim, to survivor, to wise and gentle mentor to those who are in need of affirmation and validation for their own life's experiences.
