Stop This World

Gracefully going from victim to survivor to servant leader in the heartland

I had the opportunity a few months ago to be a guest on the sur-THRIVER podcast hosted by Rena Romano. Both Rena & I are members of the RAINN Speakers Bureau. She was looking for survivors to interview who came back in life stronger after sexual assault. At the time I didn’t think that I had come back in life stronger than before, but then I had to be honest with myself and remind myself that I’ve come out of the pit and I’ve hit a mountain top. I would typically play this down, but I’m done playing small. In the podcast I recount my assault and how I dealt with depression, anxiety & PTSD. We talk about what mental health means and what it means to be a sur-THRIVER in life. I hope that you will take a listen wherever you download your podcasts, or check us out on YouTube for the video.
