SHAME. It controls us. It hurts us. And when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction it keeps families hiding, our loved ones sick and this continuing generation after generation.
I am so proud to be a part of a changing world where we are no longer encouraged to stay silent. That we all find the courage to speak openly and honestly, without shame about the DISEASE of addiction and mental illness. I know how shame wears you down, breaks your spirit and makes you believe that the situation is hopeless. But it is not hopeless. There is help out there, help for you that is struggling as well as your whole family.
Hope & Humility jewelry designs were created to celebrate and give strength to those with many challenge’s in their life; divorce, cancer, suicide, addiction, mental illness, a child with special needs or looking after a parent with Alzheimer’s. And encourage the dialog between people in order to heal us and help others. What I have found on my journey is that although all of our stories are different what remains the same is that once we start talking we feel a connection. We feel each other’s pain. We feel peace. We feel love. We feel hope.
I am proud to be offering, while they last, a FREE sterling silver boxed chain necklace in hope, humility, peace or happiness (suggested retail price $89.95) with purchase of my memoir, The Sun is Gone: A Sister Lost in Secrets, Shame, and Addiction and How I Broke Free directly from me on my website. Only $18.95 USD and ships worldwide.
I hope in some small way to make a difference. Encouraging everyone to share their story, without shame. What a beautiful gift to celebrate your recovery or achievements or for that special someone that needs to be reminded that they are not alone. Alone. It is what I felt for so long.
Wishing you all love, happiness and courage on this continued journey.
