Through GP, I was able to receive counseling and guidance to work through the pain and trauma that had kept me in bondage for so long. I learned healthy coping skills . . . how to manage my emotions . . . I was able to work through the guilt and shame that I carried as a result of my past.
I’ve learned so much about myself while at GP — basically, I was combating people who tried showing me love because I didn’t trust.
I learned self-control and boundaries . . . respect for myself and others . . . developing healthy relationships, letting go of fears, dealing with buried emotions, telling someone when I need help . . .
They taught me that I am worth fighting for . . . that my girls and I were all worthy of a better life.
Grace Place has shown me the power of being loved and having family.
At GP I was shown grace and love that I had never really experienced; they all knew the depths of my pain and were willing to see that instead of the strong facade I presented to the world around me.
I’m learning to accept myself and love myself.
