Healing and growth

This is something very new for me, and is about sharing what I've been through, and where I'm heading. This blog is going to have some horrific stuff in it, but it is what I've lived through. So there's a good chance some of this may trigger. Having plenty of personal experience with stuff triggering I thought I'd warn everyone up front. I've been through hell and then some, and I'm on my way back.

I spent a decade with a man I gave myself to, heart, mind, body and soul. In the end he left me broken and wanting, needing to die. Obviously I'm not dead. I'm actually starting to believe that's a good thing too. I'm starting this now because other strong women have shown me I'm not alone. So I'm going to be working on doing the same thing here, so that other women, other men even, know survival is not only possible, but okay.

This part of my journey is so very new to me, and I'm not even sure what to say here but I needed to jump in with both feet.


  1. Hi Samantha, at least one person is going to read your blog, If I do not comment for a while It is because I am hoidaying away from electronic world and may not see posts till early July but am looking forward to seeing them.


  2. Hi Caroline,

    No worries my dear, no rules say you have to do anything here. Honestly I've been trying to decide what to put here, or where to go next. Especially given that my other blog usually gets so much of what I have to say.

    In any case, I thought I'd stop in and say welcome, and thank you for reading.

  3. I feel the fear in all that sharing, but if we are to heal we must share, and pray that our story somehow helps not only ourselves but other people who may have a single experience similar and that that may help them too.


I'd love for you to share what's on your heart or mind after reading this.
