2.2.16 Week 2
Brave Babe Corinna shares her truth:
My name is Corinna. Growing up I always felt like I didn’t quite fit in. I think it was because I was adopted when I was only a few days old. I always craved attention, even at an early age. Whether negative or positive any attention showed me that the person who was reacting to it cared enough about me to have a reaction.
I have amazing parents and had a pretty normal upbringing. I’ve just always been a people pleaser.
When I was in high school and jr high I was raped and molested. One of the guys even harassed me during school and hung around all the time to show that he still had some sort of power over me. It was a traumatizing time in my young adolescent life. I’m not sure how it happened but I began associating sex with a power that I could have over men. It made me feel wanted, needed, and loved.
After awhile it kinda became a test for me with men to see how long or if they would stay around. Most of the time I was left disappointed.
I’ve now come to the point in my life that I finally have a feeling of empowerment and pride in myself. I no longer see myself as a victim. I have grown and evolved into the confident and strong person I am today because of my story. I am the strongest and happiest I’ve ever been. There are always ups and downs but I feel like I finally have power over my life and for me that is a life worth living.
I am Corinna and I am a Brave Babe
I love and accept myself
