Yes, yes, yes, Regina! You have become the risk-taker you feared you weren't. I applaud you mightily for your raw vulnerability, for stripping down and stepping up to the truth of your experience. Bless you for nurturing the hurting little girl you once were. She desperately needs all the love and suppport you can give her, hard as I know that can be You are on a sure path to deep healing and I send my love and support on your way.

Regina, what a moving blog post. Thank you so much for sharing so much about your relationship with you mother. Like you I also had a complex relationship with my own mother. I was sexually abused by my half-brother and my mother turned a blind eye. For years I expected her to say she was sorry for not protecting me, but I realized that healing comes from within.

Through years of therapy and writing my memoir I confronted my past. I visualized my wounded little girl, punched pillows and wrote letters of forgiveness to both my mother and half-brother. I did not mail them, I set them on fire to release my pain. It was very therapeutic.

I am learning that healing is a lifelong experience. I am a survivor, Regina, you are also a survivor and that's something worth celebrating.
