What I Want You To Know

Hi everyone.  Really quick post...

A looooooong time ago (a year maybe?) I submitted something I wrote to another blogger because she was running a series called "What I Want You To Know" where people could write in things/perspectives that they wanted to share with others.

Today, by accident, I happened upon the blog...that featured me...my post...my pain.  It stings to see it in front of the whole world (which is exactly where I wanted it).  It's scary.  I'm scared of what people will think and whether certain people will be mad at me for putting it out there.  It's raw...and it's scary...and somewhat liberating...and part of me.

If you'd like, please take a minute to visit Kristen at Rage Against the Minivan to check out this post, but also the rest of her blog.  Her family has an amazing story. :)



  1. I read your post and you are so correct--it is the verbal and mental abuse that leaves the worse scars. Black eyes, slap marks, hand prints around the throat will all disappear in time, but the "words" the control, stays in the head and heart for many, many, many years. In fact, I don't know if it ever leaves.

  2. Thank you so much for reading what I wrote and for commenting. You're right...just like the stretch marks on my stomach from having my children, the emotional scars may always be around, BUT with A LOT of emotional work, support from those who love me, and trust in God, I feel like I can use my experience to help others who have been through it...or worse, are still there. Once again, thank you so much for coming to visit me!!
