Farrha was sexually, verbally, and physically abused by her stepdad from the ages of 3-16. She had to have three abortions with the first one being when she was only 10 years old. Farrha also tried to take her own life at one point.
Effects of the traumatic experience:
After going through the abuse, Farrha had difficulty trusting men, she felt a lot of shame and had a lot of anger, and she had to learn to love herself again.
Overcoming the traumatic experience:
Counseling was one of the main things that helped Farrha begin to heal. Forgiveness has also played a big part in Farrha's healing journey along with developing a relationship with God, which she feels helped save her.
What Farrha does today:
Farrha is an interior designer who helps people create homes they are happy to go home to.
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?
Farrha's Answer: Love yourself because you are worth it.
