This week’s QOTW was chosen by Brittany L., a #Fearless community member. See why she chose it and what it is below:
“I never fully understood this quote until I got older. Negative moments in one’s past have a way to coming back to haunt them years later. Over 10 years later, I still have times where my childhood abuse rears it’s ugly head and tries to destroy the amazing life I’ve built. It is in those moments that I choose to become stronger, wiser, and remember that my abuse does not define me. I’ve learned to forgive my abuser, not for him, but so I can move on. Running only prolongs the inevitable, and you will never move on if you run. It may be the hardest thing you every do (I know it was for me), but turning around to face your past and learn from it will be the most profound part of your life.”

Lastly, we run an Emetophobia Support Group on Facebook. Emetophobia is the intense and irrational fear of throwing up, and it is one struggle we are passionately engaged in. It is a closed, by request only group to help facilitate sharing and support by all members. It is also private, meaning that the posts you and others make will not show up publicly in your newsfeed.
