Above His Shoulders
We do not choose to be brought into this world. Some believe our lives are predetermined; others say we choose the paths we walk. Still others insist it is a combination of both. What I do know: We are continually evolving and hopefully using our past experiences to reach out to others. Hence the birth of Above His Shoulders. My goal is to bring others along on my journey. At a young age I was sexually abused by my cousin. I carried those horrific events with me for many years. A part of my childhood was stolen. The effects impacted my relationships and brought me on a journey of anger, rage, depression, and feelings of isolation. Dreams of flight were frequent. My travels and therapy were a life-long process leading up to a moment where I could confront my perpetrator and feel more confident in who I was. Redemption, I have learned is earned, it takes time, patience, and perseverance.Healing not only comes from within, but learning that it is "ok" to ask for help. Dreams of flight continue, not flying away, but flying toward future goals. My intention is others will benefit and learn there is hope, there is a rainbow at the end of all thunderstorms.- In peace and healing, Dan Williams.
