In this episode of The Grass Gets Greener podcast, I'm joined by David Moody of MoodySpeaks.com. David joins me to share his story of how he was affected by being sexually abused at a time when he couldn't really speak about it and how he was able to create a great life for himself in spite of it.

David was sexually abused when he was 9 years old by the son of a babysitter.
Effects of the traumatic experience:
David worried a lot, had a low self-esteem, and then developed panic attacks and PTSD once he started talking about his experience.
Overcoming the traumatic experience:
Counseling, the love of his wife, his faith, and his desire to get better have all helped David get to where he is today.
What David does today:
David is the creator of MoodySpeaks.com, a site for survivors of childhood sexual abuse. He's also the owner of C.D. Moody Construction of Atlanta, Georgia.
Given what you know now, if you could go back to when you were going through the tough times and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?
David's Answer: Believe in yourself sooner and dream big sooner.
