******Disclaimer: This podcast was actually one of my first episodes. It was a huge learning curve for my recording. I forgot the dryer was on and tried to remove it in my recording as much as possible. Its still in there though through the first half. My apologies to all my listeners. I decided to release it out of respect to my guests Leanna and Tara. I still believe the content is really good. My quality of recording has become a lot better than this. I appreciate all the listens I get on this one. Another episode will be released shortly.*******

"I did something incredibly hard...
I went to get closure.
For 6 years I’ve been living in anger. Anger that created a lot of problems in my marriage. And unfortunately it started from the day my step father, who I used to think of as my dad, took part in walking me down the aisle and after that day I never heard from again.
6 years I hated myself somewhat, I lived in pain and flat out always had the question why.
I called and texted more times than I could count... but no answer. Of course his actions was my answer.
I started my podcast almost a year ago. I talk about hard topics and situations. And realized I’m living a hard situation. Very recently started doing some hard core counselling again. I realized how much pain I was holding of his and his shame. And I owed it to myself to give it back and to stand up for the hurt daughter I was."
Ashley tells her story of what happened as friends; Liam, Mika and Jordan listen and discuss her situation. She discusses her emotions. and what she went through before getting closure and after getting her closure.
"Here's the story of me getting my closure...listen."
GET YOUR CLOSURE. DON’T LET THESE PEOPLE KEEP YOU ANGRY, DON’T KEEP THEIR SHAME. STAND UP FOR YOU.
