Red face Love & Light! - December 1st 2017, 06:56 PM

I'm a 32 year old mom two a girl who's 9, a son who's 10 and have been through most of what this world can throw at you.

- Suicidal & depression / losing ones to suicide
- Pregnancy and infant loss
- Infertility
- Parent loss
- Addictions
- Domestic abuse (for 18 years before I had the strength to leave)
- Rape and molestation
- Abuse from family
- Run in's with the law
You name it...

That being said, my life took a turn once I left my husband this year.
What happened was that we had been having pretty deep issues in our marriage for many years. My mom passed away april 6th, 2017 at just 50 years old and my thought patterns changed a bit. I stopped worrying so much and decided to live a little.

Once I locked my kids and I in a bedroom while waiting for the police to arrive as my husband was in a jealous rage, I knew the end had arrived. It was the best choice I'd ever made for myself, and for my children!

Because of this, I went through an awakening process. This is something I'd love to get into detail about if you'd like to know more. It's just wonderful!

I'm in an amazing relationship now with a phenomenal and very positive man, he has changed my life!

I'm here (again) to offer my support. I suffer from insomnia and am almost always around. I'm more than willing to hear you out and be of whatever guidance I can be!

Namasté, love and light! <3

it's great to have someone like you here
like is terrible all the goings on you endured
but you can relate/understand more than others, when someone wants to share their troubles

Hey,
to the site.
I am so sorry to hear what you have been through
If you ever need to talk I am here.


We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.

Thanks a bunch!!
Yes, I have endured a lot, however! I wouldn't change a single thing! It has formed me into who I am today, the mother I am, friend, sister, etc.
I have been able to find the lesson in everything I've experienced and grow from it.
That's what I hope to help with the most here!

Matthew,
Thank you very much. I understand that completely. When I was a teen, it sure helped having people who actually understood and could not only sympathize, but could empathize because of personal experience.
Thank you for the reassurance I'm where I'm needed!

Love and light to you all!

Hello and welcome to the site, Alicia. It’s awesome to have another Canadien here, especially one from the wet (west) coast.

I’m sorry to hear what you’ve been through but it’s really a testament of strength to find a lesson in everything that you’ve been through and learn and grow from it. I hope that you’re able to find everything that you’re looking for here on the site and feel free to send me a VM or PM if you have any questions or if you just want to talk.

Take care and I hope to see you around.
