Trigger Warning! This episode of The Shame Free Zone contains graphic details of child sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and rape.
As survivors, both my guest Jennifer Wallace and I, bring a message of hope and healing. Please forgive us for being so damned happy. I know it’s not what you expect to see in survivors but we did a lot of work to get here. I hope our honest shares bring you healing and hope too.
On the other side of pain lies immense joy when we are willing to slog through the rage and tears. We have done that hard work. Regardless of what traumas you have suffered, you can find your way to joy if you are willing to experience the painful emotions first. And please get support for your healing. We all need help to heal. If you are a survivor of sexual assault, you can start your healing journey here: https://www.rainn.org/
