Maria was verbally and physically abused by her father from the ages of 4-20. She was also bullied in school.
Effects of the traumatic experience:
Maria suffered with some PTSD after the abuse ended. Maria was also stuck in a victim mentality for a while, and she thought that what happened to her was her fault.
Overcoming the traumatic experience:
Maria started to shift the way she saw things and learned to let go of the past. Meditation and journaling have also been really helpful for her.
What Maria does today: Maria is an author, speaker, and coach.
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?
Maria's Answer: She would send her younger self love and let her know that where she's going is going to be amazing.
