“Forgiveness is my Mt. Everest. I have miles to go before I reach forgiveness, my peace is at the summit”

T. Lanette Pollard

My toughest challenge has been forgiveness. I am a Cancer. I am a feeling, open, emotional, and honest woman. I come from an immediate family of Cancers. Our daily life included turmoil and emotion. (Thank you therapy!) That means my story of sorrow began at age 8. That is when my childhood ended, officially. There were circumstances in my home that caused the adults to make this decision. (Thank you therapy!) That moment impacted the rest of my life including my sense of self as an adult.

Every child deserves to experience their full childhood. I did not get that opportunity. That is when I decided to have low expectations for happiness and contentment. It has been a very long journey to reclaim my happiness and contentment.

Right now, I am as the base of Mt. Everest, contemplating my climb. I hope you are further or at least planning your journey. T. Lanette
