at times this level of knowing was very painful for her. So, she found herself consciously shutting down as a form of self-preservation.
It wasn’t until she had her son that she began to re-awaken. Confronting her self-preservation and yet wanting to create a new reality was confusing and left her not knowing where to begin. Despite this, she found the courage to live her life in a more loving and positive way. The more persistent she became at not fitting into the social construct, the easier her journey became, and the more she received the support and resources she needed. Through heartache, like losing her mother and grandmothers in her 20s, to moments of pure happiness, Dawne has always found compassion and grace.
