Jaded Savior is coming into 2020 with big goals and shifts to make more impact on social media.
This is a reclamation of who I am and what my mission is here in this world.
This is a rebirth of my own inner child, into womanhood and empowerment.
I am going to bring you back to the beginning, when I began this blog to discuss mental health and society.
I'm interested in stripping it all down, the bare bones of suffering and abuse.
The ways in which trauma travels through generations of families and touches on all of our lives.
Most of all, the way we talk about trauma survivors and the experiences that go unseen.
I'm here to tell you what it feels like, smells like, sounds like, tastes like when struggling with mental health issues. ----> my goal is to go beyond textbook definitions and news reports.
I am more than a statistic.
More than some words on a piece of paper or a status post.
For years I was terrified of speaking up because it may have costed me everything I had, even my own life.
When I finally experienced too much hardship but it would affect my first born, I spoke up. I lost everything I had ever known at only 16 years old to become a mother.
I've had to rebuild my life multiple times
My symptoms of PTSD are more than a side effects label, printed on a label that everyone ignores and shoves to the side.
I want you to know what it is like to be a walking and breathing result of child abuse, poverty, brain and body trauma.
This is not just about recovery ----> my platform is a place where you can understand what it is that even needs to be treated.
What suffering does to us all.
And how terribly we need to start relying on one another for healing ----> as a collective of broken souls with silenced words and voices that beg to be heard.
Being heard and being seen as a trauma survivor means something monumental. It is not a quick or basic step that should be brushed over.
To be seen for our silent struggles, even decades later.
Validation does more than make a victim feel recognized.
It closes the gaps.
The gaps in time, in events, in emotions that before hand all did not add up ------> the equation finally gets solved when someone else labels it as abnormal, unhealthy, and not okay.
This blog started as a space for recognizing truths and empowering trauma survivors to speak up.
I wish to uplift those of you who have suffered with empowerment and resources to heal ---> to show you that there is life beyond the trauma.
I am not a coach, healer, social worker, or psychiatrist.
I am a survivor who uses writing, art, and self expression to paint my pain in a way that conveys how unbearable surviving felt.
I do this so you can feel less alone as you carry similar tales in your heart.
I do this so the people who have never experienced what I have can still dig deeper into their own human experience and draw out love, compassion, and empathy for others.
I have reached a point in my existence where I am not afraid to share the details of my trauma because I know how much it impacts the lives of others when these truths are shared.
I am here for the long haul, to recover and be reborn into a leader who helps change the way we approach mental health rehabilitation.
I wish to dismantle the bullshit we have perpetuated around society about what it's like to have anxiety, depression, ptsd, and live in poverty.
My credentials are tucked into my 29 years experience with family members and loved ones who had mental health problems, generational abuse, addictions, as well as a poor and struggling lifestyle.
I also want to CRUSH the idea that you have to show up and advocate for mental health only after healing.
And break down the stigma that generational trauma takes lifetimes to dismantle.
The truth is I CAN break the chain within my own lifespan.
I CAN be resourceful and educate myself.
I CAN make a difference, once post and one person at a time.
So I will continue to, as I intuitively write about my past and present in order to address mental health topics and ways to heal holistically and spiritually.
I will be making meaningful connections with those wanting to add to my platform and cause as well as support it.
My whole heart and soul are tied to this project ----> it is my soul purpose.
And I cannot wait to share it globally. ♡
