If You Really Knew Me...

Aunie Sauce

I've been seeing this type of post float around for a while.

Have any of you ever heard of Challenge Day? If not, click here.
I was involved my freshman year of high school.
That's the event that the MTV shows were based off of (if you really knew me,
cross the line, etc).
That day was life changing for me, and everyone who participated.
For even though many ended up reverting back to their old ways, for one day,
everyone in that room was a sibling, a friend, family.
So I'm going to do this post.
And it's a little heavy - I apologize for that :) I tried to keep it short!

.... You would know I find it hard to become close with people who drink.

.... You would know that I found out I wasn't ticklish when I was molested.

.... You would know that 9/10 times I spell the word "privilege" incorrectly.

.... You would know that I should have been a third child; my parents had an abortion.

when I hit a girl in the face.

.... You would know that I always have first aid items with me in case other people
get hurt.

  1. I hate that you have had some rough times. But I'm glad that you're such an amazing person despite it all. You should teach me Italian. =) I'm living in Italy and I still can't speak it.

  2. You are a beautiful soul, and I have been blessed to get to know you! This post is very very real. If only the rest of us could write that freely and honestly. <3

  3. Elise - I am so impressed and encouraged that you are able to share your heart and so sorry that you have had so many painful things in your life! so encouraging to others that you are so open. thank you for sharing.
