After my first blog post went up, I was so excited. I wanted to keep writing and share things that I have held onto for years. I believe this could be an excellent thing for myself… but how would it affect others in my life that were involved as well?
The answer isn’t a simple one. I have three sisters and a brother, who each have their own stories to tell. As much as I enjoy this and can be open about my scars, not everyone can. Some scars will bleed, even for me. And I’m okay with that.
How do I be open and honest about my life without including others’ pain? Lives have been built and forward movement has been the focus of us all. I am so proud of my little family, each of my siblings, for making their lives better than anyone had projected.
To keep their privacy as sacred as possible, I will remain as anonymous as I am able to. The events related to my own story are from my perspective alone, and may not reflect accurately what my sisters & brother endured during their childhood.
