Slaying Dragons


I have been laying dragons ever since I was child I believe due to my childhood abuse.  The dragon represents my father who came into my room in the night.  I was terrified to go to sleep as a child and even into adulthood.  He was the Jekyll and Hyde character who was a doting father by day and a pedophile by night.  This was the dragon of my past.

As I grew up, I chose a profession that I learned to slay dragons.  I became a trial lawyers who put on her shield and sword to do battle in court.  Later, I took a job investigating sexual misconduct cases in my college involving students and faculty, who my father also served professionally.  So, I have been slaying this dragon all my life.

Now, it is time to put away the sword and the shield, as there are no more dragons to slay but only ones in my own mind.  The truth is that the dragon is dead, and there are no more battles to fight. It is finally time for the warriors to stop fighting, so she may finally rest in peace. (Copyright 2016 Awakening Journey with All Rights Reserved)

  1. Hello ❤

    I’ve recently started a blog ( ). It is a place where people from all walks of life are encouraged to write their stories of abuse – in whatever capacity they deem fit – as a way of encouraging dialogue and healing within this community. If you go to my site, and look under the about tab, you’ll discover what spirit this was created in, and will remain in.
    Let me know if you, or anyone you know, wants to share your story, get in touch with me and we’ll work something out. The process is entirely self directed and will be at the sharers pace. Whatever pace that may be.
    Love and light
