Are You SHUT IN?
When you look at me, what or whom do you see?
A happy, strong, and thriving woman. You read my memoir, look at my profile, and social media posts and think, she’s got it all together. You’re right. That’s true now, but not too long ago it wasn’t so.
Although I’m now an Award-Winning and Bestselling author and Registered Nurse, I know what it’s like to struggle with depression and be SHUT IN – Silently Hurting due to Unresolved Trauma (caused by sexual assault) Internalizing (taking on shame, anger, fear, anxiety, reliving the trauma) Needlessly because years ago, that struggle consumed my life.
I know what it’s like to wake up and feel worthless and empty. And to lay down at night thinking about the lack of passion and barrenness in my life. It got so bad that I began having suicidal thoughts. So, I know how painful it can be.
And I know what it means to be on the other side, to have purpose and joy in my life, and to wake up with praises on my lips and joy in my heart, and I go to bed thinking I AM worthy.
The best part is I am healed and can help others do the same. And, I want this kind of life for everyone! That’s why I do the work that I do. There’s a part of me that’s concerned that I’m sharing too much about my life on social media. But, my deeper truth is that I care way too much about helping those who are SHUT IN to become POWERFUL SELF-ADVOCATES and claim their God-given potential to let fear stop me.
I know how painful it can be when you’ve lost your passion in life and become SHUT IN. I’m also certain that’s not how you want your life to be. I want you to know that you are not your trauma and are not alone. You can rewrite the chapters of your life that were ripped out. You are worthy, and that’s why I’ve dedicated my life to helping women gain clarity and reclaim their lives to become powerful self-advocates.
If you, or anyone you know, struggle with unresolved trauma due to sexual assault, please drop a comment or GIF below, or message me if you prefer.
I would love to offer you a free From SHUT IN to Limitless strategy session to help you move toward becoming a powerful self-advocate, and a life of purpose.
Life is too short to spend it SHUT IN. I’d be honored to support you (or someone you care about). Let me know if I can be of service to you or someone you care about.
Are You SHUT IN? You don't have to be.
