SESSION Twenty-One: A new life begins

Based on Chapter Twenty-One, what does it mean to start a new life now that you have gone through an intense introspective discovery and release process as a survivor of abuse? We get to stop avoiding true self love. We stop lying to ourselves about how we feel and who we want to become.
We get to be in charge of what brings us joy and what we want to eliminate from our lives.

Does that mean we have all the right answers and how to handle situations that used to cause us confusion or strife? No, but we are works in progress and not immune from the human condition of experiencing life on life’s terms.

I am so glad you found this safe teaching space where twice a month for 21 weeks I will bring in a Guest Author to teach on the phases of coming out of abuse denial outlined in this book. I woke up from a dream when I was 42 understanding I was molested as a young child, and my whole life changed forever… for the better.

But not right away.

I went through some very painful stages, lost without support groups that could take me on a linear path of recovery or remove a victim mentality. I understood I had to walk through the shedding of denial first so I could write about it in my book, and then teach the process in hindsight.

When we have been abused, our subconscious lies about the truth to us for as long as it can before we are emotionally ready. For some, this is quick, but for many others like me, it took decades to face the abuse, understand the past and find a new voice. By then, I had already functioned as a false persona in so many areas of my life for so long, I didn’t even know who I was. Abuse had altered my original identity and affected the way I handled money, spirituality, friendships, success, and my ability to love myself.
