This is my therapy being an (outgoing) introvert at heart. Overall, things have been good. No one can predict all that will happen throughout life no matter the amount of preparation given. The biggest challenge of my life was faced in my first few years of life. It really blew my mind when the memory came back and the extent given in hopes that it would be forgotten.


The areas of my life that was affected were mainly:

  • trust
  • forgiveness
  • opening of the heart
  • and the willingness to give.


My personal peace wins every time. This part of life could have been kept to myself, but being to myself is nothing new. I know that my journey can help others and I am excited about this opportunity to share. To learn more please purchase, read and review the book Truth Being Bondage. It is available at most major retailers. If you need help with moving beyond trauma and blockages, Passages to Truth (a journal) is coming soon. Thank you for your support!

In the blog post Rise or Fall, the excerpt is taken from a chapter near the end of the book Truth Being Bondage. The importance of this story is that it takes my journey full circle. You never know what may happen at any given moment. So live your life to the fullest. Don’t let anyone hijack your youth, your happiness or contentment. Keep love in your heart no matter what. An overwhelming experience can become your biggest life lesson. Stay blessed!


Two of the main reasons people do not get the results they want is articulating their point through communication and cooperation. You can love someone to bits but if you don’t express it in a way that resonates with them, it may not be received the way you would like it to be. Articulate your love. Leave no room for doubt. Cooperation, it takes two. Being on the same page for a certain goal can help manifestations come to pass sooner.


True story, I was in my mid 30’s when a certain event came back to me. It serves as the basis for the book Truth Being Bondage. As faded as it could have been when the choice is made to brush it off, brush it away, it doesn’t mean that it has no effect. This is a whole life effect. Maybe the better way to put it is, how do you manage childhood trauma?

1) Act as if it never occurred

2) Have counseling provided

3) Mention it at a later point in life especially if there is a noticeable social or growth block present


I will not say any route of disclosure is right or wrong. Personally, I am working through, 2 and/ or 3 is my preference, I do not see myself as a victim. I am still mainly in shock, and it’s been some years since the memory resurfaced. Anyone who has gone through this can benefit from removing any blockades in their life. My hope is for the reader to take action in moving forward to the fullness of life.


This book is very important to me. Your cooperation is requested by making a purchase please click the highlighted link Truth Being Bondage. It is also available at most bookstores and online retailers. Thank you in advance for your support and come back to the blog! Please tell a friend.

This story represents a moment in time when you feel 100% carefree. Just having a good time living in the moment. And in an instant, EVERYTHING can change. This excerpt is taken from the chapter ‘Outlook & Disposition’ in Truth Being Bondage by Mo Abbie. Since this book is mainly focused on an early childhood event, it is ironic how this early adulthood event almost instantly turned tragic.



Before I start on my core family. My relationship with my peer cousins, is a special one. I saved my cousins from jumping all at once. This was not intentional. We had gone to a home family gathering in Bolingbrook, IL. After we ate, one of our relatives invited us to hang out at a local park. We drove down to the location. The park was more like a forest preserve.

We were all entering early adulthood. We had a big kid moment. There was at least ten of us. We just took off running and laughing. There was no particular game, just being truly young and free. Then, I looked ahead. Faintly I thought, that looks like an express way sign. It appeared to be below where we were running. I looked again. I yelled, “STOP”! I stood still yelling STOP over and over until everyone stopped. There were no warning signs. No barriers were anywhere to be found. We had no idea that we were even on an elevation. The park had an abrupt cliff where the interstate exchange lay below. Everyone heard the warning. No one was harmed. There is a youthfulness that comes out amongst us anytime we come together. This bond has been a positive key factor in my life.

The present is only pointed into in small doses. Naturally, as memoirs delve into the past. In Truth Being Bondage we touch on present day. The most disheartening thing is I was in my mid 30’s when a repressed memory came back. A horrible memory it was, but it put so much into perspective. I found a whole new understanding of myself.


One simple question from a friend, that I would have normally blown off, helped this entire book writing journey unfold. My friend asked, “why are you still single.” I finally gave the question some thought, I went digging in my mind and I am so grateful. I only wish that I had done so sooner.


This excerpt is from the chapter, “Is It Me?”:

Women have been called out for dating a man’s potential. Consider me guilty of this. It is not just about what you want him to see and manifest. He must see that same potential as a reality within himself.

I decided to take on a self-examination. The question I can’t help but pose to myself, are these guys leaving something out when we break up? Am I being spared some painful truth to protect my feelings? The energy they give is as though they are standing in the way. Almost as if they were blocking the lane for my true mate to arrive. That could be the case.

One last disclaimer before we jump right into it. Don’t get me wrong, outside of one major incident, my childhood and young adult years were amazing. I would never take away from that or try to make things to be other than what they were. There is no need to compare war wounds or minimize what others may have gone through on a continual basis. Everyone has a story to tell. I always knew that I would write someday, but I never knew that I would tell my story. The reality is that my story is somewhat new to me since this major incident this book is focused around happened at such a young age and had been long forgotten. Do children forget sometimes, yes? If they forget, are they not affected, no? The trauma is ingrained. A repressed memory is a memory, nonetheless.


I feel for those who have had it rough throughout life. Let them find a proper outlet to loosen their worries. Experiencing peace and happiness should be desired in your heart, closely followed by your actions. This is my wish for the world.


Why ‘Truth Being Bondage’? Because the truth is said to set you free. When you know the truth but your caretake does not affirm it, you have nowhere else to go but internalize it. This is bondage.
