One of our board memebers, Jillian Moya talks about being a BADASS
Updated: Apr 29, 2021
My name is Jillian Moya. I am an addict and an alcoholic. I am a victim of bullying and domestic violence. I know the pain and isolation that these abuses can cause. I have
ed in hell and often hoped that I would not live on past these experiences. I remember the pain of being called “fat” and “ugly” by family members and peers and I know how it feels to be ostracized by classmates, teachers and even employers. I recall the hurt of being pushed, slapped and spit on by someone who tells me they love me. I remember the sense of relief that one hit of crystal gave me and how little the bruises on my body ached after a couple of swigs straight from the bottle. I remember how enslaved I felt to my own desires to calm the lingering pain that remained in my heart and mind even when the abusers had been removed from my life.
My name is Jillian Moya. I am a recovered addict and alcoholic. I am a survivor of bullying and domestic violence. I know the freedom and satisfaction that comes when you choose the road less traveled. I am living life on life’s terms, in God’s will, with inner peace of mind and joy of heart. I am overwhelmed by who I have become and am not defined by the insults that were given to me. I recall my past hurts from a place of strength as those memories were my motivation to fall in love with myself. I am no longer covered in physical marks and bruises but instead I glow in the Sunshine of the Spirit. I have been transformed into the person that God always intended for me to be and I triumphantly look back on my past knowing that I am a victor who has been rocketed into the 4th dimension.
My name is Jillian Moya. I am a Bad Ass.
