    Ep 3. Unraveling My Truth

    Ep 3. Unraveling My Truth

    In this episode, I respond to your request and wonderful feedback. Thank you for letting me know what you want to hear. I am truly grateful. 

    So today I delve into the essence of my memoir, ‘Speak #TRUTH Lies’. 

    I reflect on the emotional turmoil caused by my father's passing, and the impact of family estrangement and childhood trauma on my self-esteem and sense of worth.

    It is hard to love oneself when the evidence that we are not loved by a parent is stacked high against us.

    I always feared my father and knew I needed to confront my past to overcome this fear. 

    Going deeper, I delve into the topic of writing the memoir, my personal struggles, and the battle with self-doubt and imposter syndrome.

    Sharing our stories has a healing power, and I want to hear YOUR story.

    Reach out to me via Instagram, Facebook, or website.

    To sign up for my newsletter, the Circular, click here.

    You will find the first three chapters of my memoir by clicking here. And, if you like this episode, please share it with your friends and give me a 5 ⭐️ review. The more people who listen, the more stories we share. The more we share, the more we heal.
