Author of the book,It Had to Happen - Understanding that everything you go through in life is for God's Purpose." Cynthia A. Patterson is a native Houstonian. Founder and CEO of Daughters of Virtue and Excellence, Inc. (DOVE Inc.): A nonprofit organization that offers mentoring, counseling, and personal development education to women of all walks of life.
Cynthia shares with many her testimony where she lived a double life, working in Corporate America by day then drugs, alcohol, wild parties with different men by night. While this lifestyle was very gratifying, it turned out she chose to live this way to suppress the feelings of guilt, shame, abandonment, and humiliation that she acquired from her entire negative past experiences through rape and sexual abuse. So for years, she was pursuing something that only fixed those issues temporarily by satisfying a desire for a momentary high or rush.
Aspiring to inspire!
It's good to talk.
