I’m Evelyn Hale, a spiritual teacher and healer with a background in healthcare, nonprofit leadership, and personal growth and transformation. I am sharing my story with you because I believe stories are how we find the inspiration to heal.
My hope is that by reading this, you may be inspired to go deeper on your own healing path so you can move closer to your highest self.
This story was sitting in my heart for years before I shared it. I was hesitant to talk openly about my childhood because of the of fear judgement and criticism. I worried people would think that I exaggerated or overshared. I was afraid my mother would be upset with me for sharing things from my perspective, or that she'd remember things differently. I was afraid family members would read it and feel embarrassed or regretful that they didn't do more to help. Mostly I was just afraid that people would see what felt like a deep dark part of me and that they would be repulsed.
Thankfully, I've learned to walk directly into my fears rather than away. I hope through reading this, you can better find your own healing path.
