International speaker, Sharon Wallace
Try to imagine life as an abused child.
Yet in even your darkest imagined thoughts you cannot comprehend what it’s really like to be abused and abused by the people you thought you could trust. Your family.
You wouldn’t wish the pain and suffering on your worst enemy.
Abuse is a word – with haunting images.
Welcome to my website. As an international speaker, it is always a real privilege to be invited to speak at events and groups where I can offer hope, insight and some inspiration on a wide range of emotive and challenging topics that I’ve had immense first-hand experience with.
My life hasn’t been one of luck or charm, nor do I believe I’ve led the life I was meant to. My life changed as a baby when my mother abandoned me. This act set about a sequence of events that would shape and try to blight my life for years. At nine years of age, my mother reclaimed me.
Despite continual adversity, I entered my 50th year with greater peace about my past and optimism for my future.
My belief is tough challenges in life happen to those who can cope with them. Having said that, how I’m still here today as the violence I was subjected to literally almost killed me, is like a miracle. For years I buried my grief and bewilderment, feeling too ashamed.
But I’m most certainly not my past and most definitely am my future.
Determination and courage are the only things you need in order to take the next steps towards Victory in your life and away from being, or feeling, a Victim.
Trust me. I was abused and neglected for many many years. I didn’t know why at the time, and still don’t know why now. Truth and justice evade me. At least for the time being.
I am a Victim to Victor.
You can be too.
Be good to yourself,
