"The hardships you are going through now are nothing for the person you will eventually be." This sentence resonates with me because I went through a tremendous amount of trauma at a young age. Abuse, grief, and homelessness encompassed my childhood. With the few resilience factors I had, I was able to escape my past and help others escape theirs. I currently work a crisis helpline and am an advocate for domestic violence survivors. Due to my past, I can stomach the situations I hear over the phone, allowing me to focus on providing accurate resources and support. Previously, I worked for the Department of Child Services teaching life and coping skills to families whose children may or not have been removed due to abuse and/or neglect. My social work interest and background have provided me with the skills to gather resources for any problem. I believe with the skills I've learned over time, I could face my past again and protect myself and other victims around me. Although childhood trauma should not exist, it does. Being a stable adult for children in compromising situations allows me to help children cope and grow from their situations instead of giving in to temptations such as drugs and alcohol to cope. I want anyone struggling to know that if you can conquer your past once, you can do it again.
