Getting My Voice Back
When I was a little girl I used to sing before I went to sleep. I never let anyone hear me for fear they'd criticize. So when everyone left the house, I'd spend all day walking around the apartment singing to myself. I think it was a way to hear my voice when it was otherwise being snuffed out by abusive and dismissive family. Now that that's over, I am trying and succeeding in hearing my voice again as an adult. One day I'd like for others to hear it as well.
