What is Surviving My Past all about?

Read on and learn more about the mission of SMP, where else you can find me around the web, contact info, and more!

This blog exists to validate and encourage everyone who has survived the trauma of abuse.   As a Survivor of Childhood Sexual Abuse, Narcissistic Abuse, & Bullying, I share my healing journey to help reach as many as possible with the message of hope. 

These are my thoughts about living with and healing from the trauma of that past, which includes Dissociation, Anxiety, PTSD, and Depression.  This healing journey has opened my eyes to not only the traumatic past that I have endured, but to a community of survivors all around the world, all with the same common goal of Healing.

It took me living through decades of denial to finally realize how much my past was affecting every aspect of my life as an adult. This blog, along with the podcasts and videos, is my life, shared openly and vulnerably. I look forward to connecting with you, and healing together, as we Rock our Survivor Journey!
