I probably experienced more at 14 than most do in their entire life. And being highly sensitive and empathetic- I felt it all and knew from a young age the damage it was doing. But life was still beautiful and had joy in it- which was wild to juggle with the realities of my life.
I’m 41 now – happily married with two kids, and finally feel like there is space for me to speak, reflect, and offer what little I can to anyone else. I do not think I have it all figured out, I’m very much still learning. But we can learn together.
