I am Human

I'm a Woman....I am strong.
I'm a Mother... I love and worry deeply
I'm a Drug Addict....I hurt badly
I'm human.... I make mistakes

I'm Strong... I fight hard
I love and worry deeply.... I care
I hurt badly.... I have scars
I make mistakes.... I'm far from perfection

I fight hard... I'm human
I care... I'm human
I have scars... I'm human
I'm far from perfection.. I'm human


I love my three amazing sons with all my ❤

What doesnt kill us makes us stronger

It's true. It may not always feel like it, but hard times really do make us stronger in the long run, after we get to the other side. I am learning that dealing with past trauma, loss, abuse etc. is very important. Thete is a difference between becoming stronger from making it through tough times in a healthy way and just "stuffing" the pain.. What I mean by stuffing, is avoiding talking about and dealing with our feelings... Some people think doing this makes them tough, but it actually makes them weaker because they are carrying around unresolved issues that affect them subconsciously.

This is an amazing photo I took of my newborn baby Elias grasping my oldest son Gavin's thumb... This picture speaks volumes.
