Hi, I’m Cherise,
Life is not the easiest journey for most of us. Each and every one of us has our own significant story to tell. Most of my adulthood was plagued with chaos and confusion. And I the midst of that chaos, God was blessing me in ways that I could not imagine…I just didn’t see it then.
This is my journey. After doing what I thought was to everyone else’s standards, I found that I wasn’t living up to my own. And in doing that, I found that I could never quite make that standard. Especially in my marriage. I found that no matter what I did, it was never good enough. Almost everyday I was belittled and criticized on a constant basis. These stones and bricks were just building and building on top of me mentally to the point where I couldn’t just get up and keep going.
After five years, I finally found the courage to break free. But I was still weighed down mentally. After living a certain way for so long, I was lost. I didn’t know who I was anymore. I was still mentally wounded and had to recover from that. And as I began to recover I realized that I wasn’t alone and that there are plenty of women out there in the same situation as me. I soon learned that I needed to share my story in hopes of inspiring others like me and even inspiring myself as I continue to heal.
This is no easy journey. But I’m determined more than ever to rediscover myself and become 20 times better than what I once was. I pray that this journey inspires others as they continue their journey just as I am.
So remember to always pray and keep pushing!
