Who Am I?
I am someone who has been through a lot… and overcame many obstacles to get to where I am today!
My Life’s Journey
When I was 15, I was devastated and had no hope.
I was raped when I was a virgin, and didn’t know how to cope.
I quit school and life no longer had any meaning.
I just wanted to get rid of the negative effects I was feeling.
I tried to find comfort by turning to food and drugs,
When all I really needed was someone who could give me warm hugs.
But no one knew what I had been through.
It was my secret, something only I knew.
I didn’t tell anyone for years what had happened to me.
When I did, I got counseling and then finally felt free.
But, by that time, I was already degrading myself as a working girl;
A prostitute who didn’t know how to change her world.
I was also a single mom, just trying to get by,
Still struggling with depression and getting high.
I tried my best to succeed in a world that was cruel and cold,
I went to university for 5 years, as my body I sold.
I obtained two degrees and continued to be abused by men.
I simply didn’t know how to start fresh again.
I moved away to teach high school English and Math for 3 and a half years and really tried,
But returned to prostitution because I always felt I had something to hide.
I was broken and damaged and hurt deep inside.
I felt worthless and alone and continually cried.
My suicidal thoughts would not disappear, regardless of what I did or said.
My depression caused me to have no energy or motivation, and to always want to stay in bed.
My life held no meaning and
I was going nowhere fast.
Any time I felt good, those feelings would not last.
My son learned what I was doing to earn money, so he disowned me and moved out.
I then smoked crack cocaine and hit rock bottom, although I wanted to choose a different route.
Finally, I realized my inner demons would always have a hold over me,
And until I dealt with my past, I would never be free.
I then quit everything and started my life anew,
Trying to forget all the shit that I had been through.
I applied different strategies and techniques to become happy again,
I learned how to cope with my depression and how to change my views about men.
I removed negativity from my life and reconnected with my son,
We rebuilt our relationship, turning it into and a solid one.
I started a freelancing business and became popular online,
I published a couple of books and learned how to make my life mine.
I reclaimed the innocence I thought I had once lost and also regained control,
I became the person I was meant to be, despite the cost, and now I am whole.
I no longer let my past define who I am or how I should be.
Instead, I control my thoughts and actions, and now I am a strong version of me.
I use my skills and knowledge to help others now,
Leading by example, and teaching them how…
How to achieve their goals, desires, their dreams, and how to cope;
How to be happy, successful, and at peace; how to go from NOPE to HOPE.
With a bit of effort, it’s possible to do anything you set your mind to,
Just look at me and all the stuff I have been through!
I used to be an awkward, emotional mess.
Now I am happier than I’ve ever been, and a success!
I have been featured on popular and famous websites, and have even saved lives of people I don’t know;
I have accomplished things people only dream of, and helped others grow.
Others are always saying, “Lorraine, you’re such an inspiration!”
That’s because, now, I have motivation.
I want to continue to help others and share my messages with the world.
I want to empower everyone, be it a man, a woman, a transgender, a boy, or a girl.
We all need someone to help us through our rough times and teach us how to grow and how to cope.
We also need to use the strategies and techniques taught in my book, FROM NOPE TO HOPE.
If you struggle in any area of your life, suffer from depression or negative thoughts, or simply want to improve your version of yourself, being the best you can be,
Then use the knowledge, the teachings, and the strategies offered by me.
Your life will become better, you will be more successful, and you will be happy… all this I guarantee.
I know, because I am living proof. I am finally a happier, fulfilled ME, enjoying my life journey, being all that I want to be.
