the haven retreat

I AM SO APPRECIATIVE OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE IN THE RETREAT! I WALKED IN NERVOUS BUT LEFT FEELING NOTHING BUT LOVED, SAFE AND CONFIDENT IN MY ABILITIES TO TACKLE EMOTIONS AND FEELINGS THAT MIGHT COME UP REGARDING MY PAST. I USED TO THINK THAT ‘ABUSE WAS A DEATH SENTENCE’ BUT NOW I FEEL LIKE I AM 100% CAPABLE OF LIVING THE LIFE I DESERVE.
