Kris Ponce Enrile shares her story of healing
The granddaughter of Juan Ponce Enrile talked about how she survived a dark period in her life.
“There are some days when I sit in the corner and remember how dark the last 4 years of my life were. How desperately I tried to bring light into the deepest corners of my soul. How it felt like there was no more air to breathe. How some days I didn’t want to live because I didn’t know how to get out of my situation. I was hanging on by a thread. And some days, it still feels that way.
Walking into my freedom wasn’t my choice. If God didn’t force me out of that situation, I can’t tell you where I would be today. That was my truth. I was no longer me. You could ask me who Kristen was and I would’ve just shrugged and said I don’t know. I lost her. I just accepted the life I chose to live and had faith that God would pull me through. It took a lot of rock bottoms, dark nights, screaming and tears, but He did. He pulled me through.
Now here I am at the other side of what was once my story of loss. My truth is evolving. And it’s now becoming a story of overcoming. Of healing. Of happiness. Of peace.
I don’t need anyone’s permission to be me. I don’t need to keep dimming my own light so others can shine brighter. That’s not how this works. I know that now. I will let my light shine so bright that it encourages people to do the same. ✨ #selflove #selfcare #selfcarethreads#narcsurvivor #healingisnotlinear” @krisponceenrile said.
