Memories Once Lost

Over the past year i was able to make contact with friends and family from my country “Jamaica” I always knew most of my memories of growing up in Jamaica and some of my memories here in the United States seem to have been blocked or lost. I never really knew why or what those memories were, but in recent months and with certain connections from my family and school mates a lot of the lost memories seem to have been surfacing. Most of them i now understand why i could not remember them as i now realize, growing up in my county as kids, we were abused in so many ways, Mentally, physically and the hidden abuse of emotions (emotionally abused). I must ask myself do i want to try to remember things? at this point i do not think i have a choice i need to know why i had to play so hard on the “offense as well as the defense”

Licensed Mortgage Banker currently for the states of NY & NJ with over 18 years of mortgage banking experience, as a single mother of two sons ages 27 and 21 years old :) Came from the Island of Jamaica at the age of 18 years old with just the shoes on my feet and the clothes on my back. Soon pregnant with no support or hope, I had to find a way to survive. Through many struggles and hard times, survive I did. Now I would like to share my experiences with others who may be facing the same hopelessness but with the desire to survive the struggles facing them.
