Detox - my song as a domestic abuse survivor!

A friend of mine who was being incredibly strong through a horrible heartbreak said to me, "Detoxification is good for the soul"... meaning take the time to self-cleanse and release the hurt from your spirit through prayer, meditation and focus on what truly makes you happy. So, I was inspired to finally release the fear of sharing my past hurt of being in abusive relationships. I had already written down how I felt but was afraid to record it so others could hear it. I gave it a shot, calling the track "Detox" and just let my emotions go! While recording, knowing this song was coming from such a dark place, I asked the producer to turn off all the lights so I could get it all out. I cried, I screamed but Detox was birthed and I finally healed.

I've experienced physical and emotional abuse, even had an ex put a gun to my head swearing that if he couldn't have me, no one else will. Thankfully the gun was jammed. I'm blessed to be here, bold, brave and sane! 

The message I want to convey through Detox is please don't be afraid to walk away from an unhealthy situation. I was one of the fortunate ones because I survived. Anything that's harmful to you is not good for you and love does not hurt! So whatever you're going through, know that your happiness, peace of mind and safety matters most. You deserve to be happy and live peacefully! So do what's necessary to take care of your well being and don't be afraid to seek help if you need it. Protect yourself and lean on those who got your back. You'll become even stronger with a great support system.
