Got Married at 17. To a very abusive man.
My daughter passed away
I had a stroke.
I have not ever had a life of my own
All I want to do and all I feel like I can do is paint and talk to broken people so they know they aren't alone and that they can help themselves. My Facebook page, I added every broken person I could find. I have 5,000 Facebook friends that most people wouldn't even associate with. I love them all because they are a reflection of me. Tired, broke, and just trying to survive this world. I want to thrive. It should be the norm. People who have been through things operate differently. I want to give them some encouragement. There are people who are geniuses and homeless. They will never know their potential. They will always feel worthless because the world taught them that they are. Because they are broken. I want to help broken people learn how to live again. I should not have come back from anything I've been through. If I can do it, Anyone can.
I want to raise money to keep painting so I can keep sharing my story.
I want to thrive instead of just exist.
