20% of the population experiences sexual abuse and/or assault. We designed The 6 Steps to Freedom to help them move forward to live great lives! Our goal is to help 1,000 people find freedom this year.
We’re not counselors (although, we have lots of amazing ones we can connect you with!) and there’s no cookie cutter answer to moving forward. These are the steps that our founder, Matt, took to move forward in his own life.
These 6 Steps to Freedom were designed for you to commit to and step through at your own pace and in your own way. We’re thrilled and honored to come alongside you to help you gain the freedom you deserve in your life. 🙂Commit to taking the 6 Steps
Stop carrying it. You don’t need to share your story with the world, but you also don’t need to continue carrying it. Get it off your chest. You’ll be SO glad you did!
Start focusing on moving forward, understanding that you don’t have to carry the weight of the abuse on your shoulders. The more frequently you share about your story, the easier it will become. Think about it this way: The first time you do something, it can be REALLY scary. But the 100th time you do it… not scary at all.
This one sounds silly, but it’s one of the most important things. You’re probably quick to tell others how important they are, right? Well, it’s time to recognize and acknowledge this about yourself. When you allow yourself to acknowledge how valuable you are – and not even in a “selfish” or “arrogant” way, but simply matter-of-fact… it makes all the rest of these steps make sense. Replace lies that you believe about yourself with TRUTH.
Hanging onto anger doesn’t hurt your offender. It only hurts you (and probably those around you too). In Matt’s case, he didn’t even realize he had anger toward his offender. Let it out, but in a healthy way!
Forgive and take away all the power your offender has had over your life.This is the step that is most often overlooked and misunderstood, and the one that typically meets some (or, sometimes a lot of) resistance. Don’t skip this one! Trust us. It’s SO important for YOU!
If you don’t have plans for where you want to go, that’s exactly where you’ll end up. Deep, huh? It’s true. Be intentional. Set a vision for your life with real, specific, time-sensitive goals that energize and excite you. And then go after them with all you’ve got!
Your story has the power to change lives. When people know they’re not the only person in the world going through what they’re going through… it makes a world of difference. When you’re ready, use your story to help others. Keep it simple, don’t worry about being grandiose, and simply do what’s healthiest for you.
Rock star! We are so thrilled and pumped for you! Life’s a series of choices… and you’re making one of the best ever!!
Once you officially commit, be watching for an email from us to get you started!
