My personal story was published on Longreads

I’m flattered that my personal story “Liberation: a love story (and a reckoning)” was recently published on — it’s an exploration of how inherited family trauma has showed up in my life, here’s a teaser:

“Perhaps what I know of my grandfather’s dark side can teach me more about myself. There are also parts of me that I find difficult to accept. I wonder how not accepting them holds me back and keep me stuck? When I accept my difficult parts I make space to move from surviving to thriving. Maybe my grandfather was working on accepting his difficult parts too. Maybe I never heard about them because of the shame he carried.”
