Hey there, I’m glad you made it here. This page is for you and for people like you and me; Strong and Courageous. You may be experiencing pain from break ups, from divorce, or the most painful of all, losing your child, but remember, the struggles we’re facing today are developing the courage to let go and strength we will need for tomorrow.
Those struggles may appear in different forms. In my case, struggles went from mild to severe within very short period of time. First I was a victim of a cheating spouse few years ago.
Being the Victim
I was a victim of verbal abuse, and I suffered from being abused mentally, financially, and physically. I've been lead to believe that I wasn’t good enough and that I deserved what was served to me. I was afraid to move on, because I loved him and I told myself I won’t be able to find a man like him, so I did what most spouses do, be a martyr and try to save the marriage. I let him do what he wanted to do, I let him walk over me, for the sake of saving the marriage and hoping that maybe one day the man I fell in love with will comeback. Sounds familiar?
How long could you endure the pain of loving someone that doesn’t value you anymore? See, loving someone doesn’t mean you should be with them. Trying to save the broken glass will only cut you and make you bleed. Be brave, throw away that broken glass and be strong to face the challenge that comes next.
You’re too strong to live your life hurting. You are too beautiful to let someone’s ugly ways make you insecure of yourself. Never allow detestable people to hurt you.
After I gained the courage to let go and move on with my life, I regained my confidence. I loved and gave value to myself and the result fascinated me.
Remember when you were thinking that maybe you won’t find someone like that person you used to love? You’re right with that. You will never find someone like that again because the persons you will attract are those people that will see the greatest value in you.
Letting Go of the Past
Moving on and letting go of my past toxic relationship blessed me with a man whom I call my un-married husband. He is my strength when I am weak, my guide when I’m lost, and the light in my darkness, (not trying to be cheesy). Not to mention my walking encyclopedia, no kidding aside.
Our love had given us a wonderful gift. We were overjoyed with the news that I am carrying our baby. We couldn’t ask for more, it all seemed great and I was perfectly happy. Then, I was hit with the severe storm.
Life has played me again. Not long ago, we lost our Angel just a few weeks before the due date. It was the most agonizing feeling I had ever felt in my entire life. Holding your child in your arms for the first, last, and only time unlocks a pain your soul never imagined possible.
Courage to Let Go
Why do I have to say goodbye before I can have a chance to say hello? How I’d love to hear the sound of her cry. Each day I wished it’s only a nightmare and when I wake up, our baby would still be with us. How can you overcome that pain? How can you live again without the one that completes you?
When you lose a child, you lose an entire lifetime of dreams, wishes and plans, but somehow, we have get courage to let go and move on. Yes, we will never be the same. The hardest part of losing a baby is living everyday afterwards, but one way or another we have to make that step forward. It’s not easy, but one step at a time, we can and we will get through it.
For that reason, this site came to be; to encourage everyone that is or was in the same position like me. Let’s help each other, empower and uplift one another.
Share your stories to help other people overcome their loss and grief.

The right person will come and will show you how it feels to be truly loved.
