Angs is nie meer my tronk nie. Ek was ‘n slaaf van vrees. My aanvaarding van myself was ‘n belangrike stap op hierdie pad na Vryheid. My hart is rustig oor my verlede en my pad vorentoe.
A fun day for me, is a day filled with learning new things. When my brain is occupied, my body is much calmer than when I am bored. To have a calm body is absolute bliss.
My words have always been in my head, but it was only after starting to use S2C, that everyone now knows of my words that can not get out of my mouth.
