Messy Confessions: Video 1 – Abuse


**TRIGGER WARNING** I discuss physical and sexual abuse in this video, so if these things have happened to you or “trigger” you, you may want to steer clear of this particular video.

Music at the beginning of video is from freemusicarchive.org and is entitled “Reader! Do you read?” by Chris Zabriskie. I used this in an old video series that I did on my old blog before moving it, so it only seems fitting that it continues on with this series and beyond.

    I think you are so brave for doing this series and talking about what happened to you!
    I can believe these will be hard to talk about, because it’s hard to hear that these things happened to you.
    I’m sending you all of the hugs (even though you don’t want them.)

      Yes, it was hard to talk about, but I recognize that it may do someone else some good to hear they are not alone in what they have been through. After posting that video, I think I am accepting hugs throughout it. Just know afterwards I am going back to the old Cassie 😉

    You are so brave for doing this, but I think you’re right, these things are not talked about enough. It’s so good to finally know someone who is speaking up. Thank you so much for sharing. *hugs*

      Thank you for the kind words! I agree with you. So many people are afraid to discuss them because they are afraid of being seen as “seeking sympathy” or something else like that, but the truth is people need to know they are not alone in the world. They need to know there is nothing wrong with allowing others to know that you have had a life and that you survived these things. Often these things are what makes all of us, as humans, beautiful. We just seem to forget that. I will keep sharing. I think there are 7 videos in total in the series, so you are going to get a lot of speaking up! *hugs back*

    Cassie, you are such an inspiration. You are so brave, I can only hope to one day be as brave as you. This video is so raw and real and I’m so happy you are feeling comfortable enough to share your life experiences. I agree that it helps to know you are not alone in certain troubling situations. Thank you for being you!

      Thank you so much for these kind words, but I think of you as an inspiration and that you are pretty darn brave yourself. You may not see it, but every single time I see one of your videos I think that you are super brave! You don’t know how much I appreciate you for being you, so thank you again for saying what you have in this comment. It means the absolute world to me!
