Thanks again @authorsabrinabscales!
Behind these bricks, life comes at you fast. And whether you’re here by choice or circumstance, there are lessons to be learned as well as taught. Nobody knows The Bricks better than the women who live between them. These are their stories of lessons, blessings, love, and loss, brought to you brick by brick.
The choice to look back in order to move forward was the easiest choice I’d ever made. I’d spent my whole life not truly knowing myself, and my parents assumed that their love and protection would heal that wound. Unfortunately, all they did was cover it up, and one could only pretend to be whole for so long, before seeking actual wholeness took over their focus. And that’s how I landed in the Rose Palms, Apt. #A1. It was where my story had started, and where I’d finally know what it meant to be whole.
Oh, I’m Freddie, by the way. Watch your step and have a seat. And don’t mind the drumming from next door.
