Jay Haston is a male surTHRIVER® of child sexual abuse and witnessed the murder of his father by his uncle.

Jay says: "As a survivor of incest, it made me question my masculinity, I was self-sabotaging and contemplated suicide. I did not like the man I had become. I decided I had had enough and asked for help. Now my purpose is to help others get the help they need and to make sure help is available when they ask for it. We can't wait weeks or months for help when we are in crisis. Male survivor you are not alone, and you have nothing to be ashamed of."

Episode 58 Rena chats with Kristal Denise Garcia “Self Love is a Priority”

February 9, 2021

Kristal Denise Garcia is a speaker, podcaster, and "Self Love Coach" she is a thriving survivor of physical/psychological/sexual abuse and trauma including covert sex trafficking incorrectly labeled ‘sex work’, C-PTSD and homelessness.

"Life did not seem to love me, or so I thought. Loving myself felt like a fantasy, something I did not deserve and could only experience by watching others, surely I couldn’t embody such love. I watched those who loved themselves, like a child with her nose pressed against a Christmas window witnessing magic beyond my grasp. But Self Love is not magic and it’s not beyond our grasp, it exists right now in this moment within each of us simply waiting for us to embrace ourselves and remember."
