Content warning: Discussions of childhood abuse, sexual abuse/harrassment/assault, and other uncomfortable topics are discussed. Please do not listen around minors or in a setting that you are not comfortable to hear about such topics (ie. work, your dinner table, traveling with your long-lost grandma, etc.)
This episode takes a deep dive into the early years of your host, Courtney, and the experiences I faced in early childhood & adolescence. While I have spoken on my story and details before, I've never done so on a recorded, long-lasting platform, so please be kind and understanding of the sensitivity, vulnerability, and courage it is taking me to press publish. I want to be a safe space for others like me, who have never felt heard, seen, or understood.
This is a series that I would truly love to connect with you. Connecting and being able to talk with you as my listener lights me up and I love hearing about what resonated with you, so be sure to DM me on http://www.instagram.com/happyvibesmama or send me a text 570-669-3383 and let's chat! I hope this episode is the beginning to having uncomfortable discussions with yourself, your partner, your children, and those who mean the most in your world to make sure no other child or person has to experience this, because as you will learn in my story, small comments or remarks, even if made in jest or rationalizing ideas like, "boys will be boys" can cause a slippery slope of shame, guilt, and self worth for years to come.
Let's Connect, Mama!
