Never Give Up on Your Dreams
Seven years ago when I began this journey of being a Victims Advocate, I had many goals, some I have seen developed and others are still in the making. I thought this road would of been an easy one, however I clearly misjudged this path for many in society make it harder for the victim to break their silence and for the survivors to thrive.
One of the main goals which I penned back then was the establishment of a first world center for victims of abuse which does not only work as a safe space and place but also as a holistic training center for victims of abuse and their hurting families. And to help where we can to alleviate poverty and hunger.
As I did a second site visit to Matura yesterday It dawned on me that the goal will be realized and I felt unworthy, thanks to the partnership with a US elected official, Ex-Marine and a native of this soil who will be doing some great work in Trinidad and Tobago with his foundation. We shall do an official announcement in the coming weeks on our page.
Whatever your dreams may be, NEVER STOP DREAMING even when you do not see a way of it coming to pass, even when others laugh at you and call you foolish and even when many say to you "You now start you want to change the world, relax" Even when sever test and obstacles arise once its your life's purpose the Creator will always send people of like minds and passion to just give you a start and he will do the rest.
Many times I felt like giving up and forgetting about advocacy and helping, many times I felt and still feel misunderstood by many for my passion to help, guess its only those who feel it can truly understand why survivours PUSH so much. Only those who have experienced the pangs of hunger and the torment of seeing others eat while you watch as a way of punishment can truly know the pains of hunger which a child experiences.
I depleted all and everything I have for this cause guess some may say that's a hell of a sacrifice and I rather sacrifice even myself to save another human being from the evil sting of abuse, domestic violence and pain than to sit by and do nothing. I rather sacrifice than see or hear the cries of a child in hunger.
I sank in depression doing this work as the cases and victims would reach out giving heart wrenching details of their abuse which they prefer no man knows for fear of judgments and being labeled however they are silently seeking help. Every time I said this was it something would arise which called for me to dig deep to push myself to help.
I realize that I cannot run from my destiny for it is in my DNA, I was molded for this purpose, fashioned by the acts of cruel violence and framed by the ignorance of society, Its in my blood and despite all the challenges I now stand to embrace my calling.
The journey has now begun on a next threader of the ladder of Advocacy and I know there will be great challenges to overcome but I also see great blessings, positive energy, and great support.
to all those who stood with me in my madness because sanity clearly never works at times I say thank you. To those who supported us and still do thank you.
Never stop dreaming.
