Shannon Thomas- Healing From Hidden Abuse

Beware. It is not you. It is them.

I have many miracles to share from our Christmas and New Year’s.  But for today, I am sharing information which I find immensely comforting, because even in times of joy and peace, I am haunted, at a cellular level,
by what I continue to experienced with my mother and sister.  Recovery is a process-as much to unlearn as to learn.  Sharing is a large part of my process and a great filter, as it weeds out those who are unsupportive: not an asset to my recovery.  The Work of recovering from anything, is honestly the most badass thing a person can do.  It is not for everyone.

#Nocontact is a painful and necessary decision for some of us to survive and live live that are more productive than terrifying.
Much Love,
Magda Gee

I am in a program of recovery for those whose lives have been affected by someone else's drinking, drug use, mental illness. I am new to the experiences of faith and hope and courage, qualities absent for me in proximity to my family. No Contact has been the way to keep safe from diminishing words and actions directed at me. I think I have listened for the last time to how I deserve mistreatment. By holding out for something more wholesome and loving, I have been both banished and demanded to return. I prefer serenity to proximity. I will continue with my program and faith in the best possible outcome, so long as I do my part-- to stalk GOD as if my life depends on it.
