There is no manual that teaches us how to live. We aren’t born with an instruction book giving us the answers to all the obstacles we will face in our lives.
The best way I found to deal with trauma and emotional wounds was to create this blog actually. Writing about my experiences, my fears, the life lessons I’ve acquired to experience, baring my soul and fighting for awareness and rights helps me work through trauma and emotional scars that have been with me for years, some for decades.
