A few years back I assisted my son in producing a documentary on suicide prevention/ dealing with many mental health issues that people suffer from - and usually suffer in silence. We titled our film SHATTERED SILENCE, and I think this is where I first began to be triggered in the direction of my OWN silence. Slowly but surely through my own writings/blogging I began to shatter my own silence and unintentionally started in the direction of an actual book.
In my very frail beginnings, and NOT knowing where I was even headed, my book editor asked me if I had read the story of Princess Tamar/ King David's daughter - I had not. So I did. And it wrecked me to my core, for so many reasons. Mostly because I myself was a victim of sexual abuse in my youth years. I was raped. Tamar then kind of became who I was writing the book for, like as a tribute to her or me all the other nameless faces down through history - becoming the voice NONE of us got to have. In her sexual abuse story, it speaks of a door being slammed in her face and bolted shut as she was banished and doomed to remain desolate, just her and her shame - and, I just knew. I felt it. I heard the bolt clicking - I felt the shudder of the slam - I recognized the hopelessness of a door being bolted shut. The door represents secrets, lies, coverups, and mostly - silence.
So I unbolted my own door, told my own lifelong secret, and slay the dragon of shame. I faced my past and the effects and consequences of it. THAT was the story in my first book Beyond The Bolted Door. The Road Beyond The Bolted Door is what it has looked like (and felt like) on this road to freedom - the journey of the road less traveled. And it's kind of my journal for others to learn from what I learned, and maybe learn it much sooner than I did. I am just sharing sharing my journey from pain to purpose, to show others like me that they are NOT alone. We must become our own heroes and rise up on our OWN behalf. We must do this for those who come behind us. Why we should all keep going, fulfill our own purpose and never give up, is because none of our stories are finished, until ALL of our stories are finished.
My first book Beyond The Bolted Door is also available online on Amazon, Walmart, Barnes & Noble, Ingram Books, Baker & Taylor. My website is https://corinechannell.com
