Terrible Bruised But Not Broken

Hello community Today I decided to share a little about myself a few things pertaining not giving up as I'm going forward I'm truly blessed. Terrible bruised but not broken Appreciation for my defects.A sane mind I still have left.In and out of prison,even close to death.Rapped stripped for my body I won't forget.Witnessing many murders I remain to see the image.Trying to save my grandmother I will always forever see that vision.Self Mutilation became my first mission.Than I started to use drug's at the first beginning.I also had many crossed addictions.Physically and mentally I fought for my sanity.Drug's,gun's,and volience was my crazy thinking humanity.Hung out an window by my feet not really caring if he dropped me.Hearing of suicide of my friends death.Knowing aids got my brother and death took his lover,a sane mind I still have left.Lost my father to an alcoholic death.I was about to even put my mother to rest.Ran with gangs that didn't careless.About time all of this I wasn't afraid of death.I use to think of it as being quite normal.I seen friends sell they body at a very young age,male or female they all had they get money ways.No family they had to go to so they became they own.They fought for eachother, yes many of them is now gone.Some was killed by dates,overdose off drugs,had sex aids became they love.They last piece of hope was they resting date.I know some of them didn't want to go out that way.They will also live through me as I push for better day's #peace #love#community #unity #motivation

I'm clean and sober 6 year's now. I didn't think I would be able to see the day of waking up in my own home safe and sound in good health food and clothes and shoes and on top of that. Full of faith and trust that a better day is to come. I have been in the woods left for dead. Stripping and the minute the money hit my hands it was gone. I can go on and on about the darkness and the other horrors that I went through. I don't deny that it happened, I just can't allow it to continue to hold me hostage. I mean nothing in life is more precious to me than Actually living instead of just being alive. I feel like a brand new person each day I am blessed to wake up and take that first breath. I'm a work in progress and I can respect you for being so honest with yourself and your journey. It's not over yet. You are going to be alright love. I'm a witness to knowing that thing's get better if you allow them to. My prayers are with you and I'm willing to give you a shoulder if you need it or better yet just a loving ear and heart if you need to vent. Bless you love and Don't ever Give up

First of all, it was very brave of you to share all of that, so thanks for being so open about your struggles. And I truly appreciate that you're striving to get past these traumatic and damaging experiences. I've lost people too to drugs, murder, suicide. All you can do is try to honor their memory by doing your best every day. I have massive respect and pride for you for doing that. Good luck with everything, truly.
