Unfolding Souls Passing the Pen Campaign Lecture I had a wonderful time August 1st 2017 Cali Style. Everyone has a sad story to tell that hasn’t been told. By Oman McCullough-Fuqua Thanks to Mrs. Carolyn Moore a Mental Health Counselor for the Invitation to speak at the Mental Health Clinic and to the women who listened and participated ❤❤❤❤❤❤💕
I am the Arthur of 4 books. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. Number 9 of 9 children by the same parents. Every human being has a spirit within us whether good, or bad. I shared my story of abuse with the world through” Passing the Pen Campaign” I created the campaign from my novel Unfolding Souls to talk about the bad spirits I picked up from my abusers and sex partners. After writing my story down on paper I became aware that the things I was doing and the decisions I was making wasn’t my character. I had been living up to the reputation that people had given me. As I begin to find myself in pages and pages of my life story my healing process begin. Today by the grace of God I am fully recovered.
Before I start:
Q 1. Are there anyone who feels uncomfortable listening as I read and talk about my personal abuse? If yes. Why? Usually the women who are uncomfortable are the women who’s been through similar situations and never mentally dealt with their problems or the pain of abuse.
Why are you here? Most abused women will talk to me because there’s no one else to talk to without judgement.
I search the internet on my blog I introduce myself to young and old women that have survived their abuse and don’t want to live still. Some have tried to commit suicide or they are in distress and don’t have anyone to talk to. I share my story and encourage them that fully recovery is possible. It takes a strong person, woman or man to write their story down on paper or blog it out. I will continue to tell my story and continue to help women heal from their pain. I pray for abused men and women to find fully recovery and peace of mind.
I’m here because I was raped at 16 and my rapist got me pregnant. After three months of my pregnancy I was raped again because my first rapist told my second rapist that I was giving sex away. After I had my son I met a guy that I fell in love with and I used him for sex to numb my pain. He began abusing me after I used the word “No” to his proposal to marriage. I tried to leave him, he kidnapped me and put a gun to my head threatening to kill me and then himself. I was given a bad reputation of being promiscuous by people around me. I was feeling to broken to talk up for myself I tried to live up to my bad reputation and continued sleeping with men to numb my pain. Today I know that person I portrayed to be back then was not my character but the reputation people gave me. Today I possess the character inside the woman God created me to be with class and style. I know who I am.
Q2. Do you know when you have been abused you see the world through abused eyes you make decisions through an abused Mine Heart and Soul. The things you do are not your true character.
Q3. Page 24 What age were you when you were abused? A 18 year old blogger asked me that question. Looking back on my time of abuse I would say to my young self; we made it through because of you.
Q4. Page 36. What do you do to escape your anger and pain? Do you use others. Do you do things that has become an addiction? Being addicted to drugs and alcohol only depends the pain and feels like you’re walking around with open wounds. Read from the book starting at page 35
Q5. Read page 247 Why do we bring people in our lives and want them to love us and we don’t love ourselves?
Q6. Page 46 Why are we hard on ourselves and feel we are not deserving of love. Why do we not value ourselves enough to work toward a total healing.
Q7. Page 111 What was your Breaking Point your rock bottom? The women shared their rock bottom, mind-blowing stories.
Q8. Are any one of you feeling hopeful about your healing process? If so, after today what are you going to do differently? Live well do your best and stay focus on a fully recovery. Write Your Story down and free your mind from pain. Let go and forgive. Create a happy place in your mind and never let anyone interrupt your positive thoughts.
Q9. Do you believe in a Higher-Power? I am a believer in God. I DON’T LET PEOPLE GET IN MY HEAD. Read Ezekiel 36 and receive a new heart from God. I’m a living testimony that God is real and I have the new heart that he promised.
Thank you to the women who shared their stories and shedded tears. Telling your story is a healthy part of your healing process. You’re on the road to recovery.
