Growing Up Shattered. Introduction

Growing up shattered

Sharp edges worn smooth with time.

A peaceful garden.


Hi and thank you for following Growing Up…my thoughts on surviving childhood abuse.

My name is Nina, the N in NZain.

If there is one thing I’ve learned about healing old childhood traumas–“it’s a journey not a race.” (who said that?) Healing not only takes time, but action, faith, and a good dose of humor too!

Support is also necessary. We are not alone! Kind-hearted people are everywhere–right here, and connecting with other like-minded folk on the journey is truly one of life’s greatest joys. I am pleased to meet you.

Growing up sideways is tough enough. Growing up shattered is another story; one that I hope will inspire you on your own journey. Healing is possible. Trust in the process.
