Hello Sunshine

My name is Sasha and I am 26 years old. Before starting this blog, I wanted to introduce myself. That way you have a better understanding about why I chose the topics I decided to write about. The last 9 years of my life have been the most life-changing years, full of hardships. Let me take you back to the year 2009. I was 16 years old and a senior in high school- with a few jobs, played sports, had many great friends that turned into family. I was your average teenager girl. I had a lot going for myself, so I thought. My Father raised me on his own. would have known, the day I found my Father dead, everything would change. The once innocent, small town, country girl, ran away from anything and everyone she once knew. I started partying every day- drinking and doing drugs. And began hanging out with totally different people. I went missing on all the people who were once in my life. All these new people I surrounded myself with the last 9 years did nothing but use, abuse and work against me.  I began hanging out in big cities and got into the street life. This lifestyle brought me so close to death, more times than I can count. Then, before I knew it, I started prostituting. And landed myself in an abusvie relationship that I couldn’t seem to find my way out of. It’s going on 10 years since the day everything changed. And I finally decided to change my life. I no longer run the streets- so no more partying and hanging with the wrong crowd.  In 2017, I found the strength to leave the abusive man I was with. I moved back up to my small country town and haven’t went back to prostitution.  I left with nothing and have nobody by my side. Now I am sitting here with no friends, a criminal record, debt that seems endless and PTSD that I am trying to heal from. Life taught me a lot. I learned a lot about myself and changed into a better person through all the pain I have endured. And life had to teach me the hard way. I have grown and I am still growing.  I have been through so much, I could write novel about novel on my life experiences. The darkest moments of my life brought me closer to the Light. My life has been far from easy and I hope you will join me on my journey through life. I will be blogging about it here. I’ll be talking about my past experiences and current situation and thoughts as well. I have been silent for too long and I am eager to finally open up about myself and past experiences. I am looking forward to chatting with you here!
