    Why I Was Disowned by My Family

    This is one of the hardest posts I will ever have to write for my blog. Writing this post makes my heart ache and brings my grief back to the surface. I never thought in a million years that this would be one the stories I would tell the world. But, here I am opening up to you and giving you the exact details of my parents disowning me. Only my closest friends and family know the exact details about what happened. It has taken a lot of courage and vulnerability to share this story with you. I won’t be sharing my feelings or thoughts with you in this post. The…
