The World is Full of Courageous Warriors that Have a Voice

In my book, The Dissociate: A memoir of secrets and survival of childhood sexual abuse I talk about the many stages of healing in Chapter Six.

Stage Three of my Healing Continuum is having a voice and breaking the silence. “It takes a great deal of courage to share what happened to you. The powerful healing force behind telling another human being will help you move forward. Break the silence.”

Thank you to all the courageous warriors sharing their stories yesterday. You have a voice and you are healing  

You are not alone

Childhood sexual abuse is not the problem of just one socio-economic status, culture, race, religion, or gender. It impacts EVERY community and EVERY person across the globe.

The Brain and the Aftermath of Early-Life Abuse

I met several survivors at the signing this past weekend at Indigo CrossIron Mills. Courageous warriors that have big bold voices for the world to hear the truth and some just taking that first step in the healing process. Child abuse of any sort can leave lasting scares. And mental illness is often the result. Mental illness changes the way people feel, think and sometimes act.

The pain and struggle victims endure stay with them for life. 
Those imbedded scars NEVER go away. New research is now revealing what happens to the brain in the aftermath of early-life abuse. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/319566.php

The economic impact of child abuse on society is staggering.
According to the Day model, which measures the judicial, social services, education, health, employment and personal costs of violence:
The total costs of child abuse (including child sexual abuse) are estimated to be $15,705,910,947 annually.

Please get educated to END childhood sexual abuse.

NOT the case with boxing!

It’s truly a secret weapon to combat anxiety and depression.
The surge of endorphins I experience are much like the ‘runners high’ I would experience as a former long distance runner.
Throughout my journey to wellness, anger has reared it’s ugly head from time to time and cost me an important relationship. Anger is an energy. If not properly released in healthy ways become negative energy which is incredibly harmful to your health and to ones around you.
Boxing is a safe place to release stress and anger. Tone your body. Increase your cardiovascular health and feel empowered learning how to defend yourself.

Put up your dukes and have some fun!
