Phebe Naomi's Page: When Disappointments are All Around You, and Still You Stand

Our first guest this week tells such a powerful story of survival! She talks about trauma from a tender age, and generational trauma and pain and suffering and substance abuse, and maternal domestic abuse and parental separation, and sexual abuse by a family member, and absent parent and abuse by her own spouse! How many points are those on the ACEs scale? She is a certified domestic violence counselor who is out on a mission to help others, but who first had to reconcile with all the hurt that was inflicted upon her as a child! Find out what happened that made me call a hard STOP to the interview! Quotables: "My mom and dad would fight all the time" "I felt hopeless because I was so small" "I felt so worthless" "I started smoking and drinking to numb the pain" "Suicide is usually very subtle" Where to find: YouTube: GloryBe2THEMOSTHIGH Forever Email: thinkpositively2day@outlook.com PS: Our book is off to a great start!
