Raising awareness to narcissism

$1,000 goal

Campaign created 3 months ago
I have suffered at the hands of narcissists for over 35 years, up until the time I disowned my mother, and went no contact with her over 10 years ago, in order to save my sanity.  My "mother" referred to me as “Ole Girl”.
After she died in 2015,  I am now brave enough to talk about the abuse and have decided to come forward to help others who have no idea why they are being treated so badly. 

It's not YOUR fault and if someone could have told me this years ago I would not have suffered for so long.  I want to raise awareness to the abuse that others are suffering from and to educate the public about these people who exist to terrorize people and feel they are entitled. 

I have been a victim of narcissism, constantly being used as a "scapegoat" and being a codependent to narcissists in the past.   After being belittled my entire life as well as being “gas-lighted” into believing I couldn’t do anything right; I realized I was always being controlled.  I am now being open and honest to let the healing begin. Through my suffering, through my pain, I have been given an opportunity to help others.

After fighting my narcissistic brother for  two years for my very small portion of the "inheritance", I  used part of the proceeds to buy a 1937 Harley Knucklehead that I have dubbed "Redemption".  From the moment I brought the bike home, GOD put the name in my head and the idea to help others.

I have already gotten some big-name sponsors for this project, including Avon Tyres, Spectro Oils, Motorcycle House/Viking Bags and Baker Drivetrain.  This project will be getting lots of media attention as I start to send the story out and update the progress on "Redemption".  My relationship with countless national and international publications will not only raise awareness to narcissism but it will get sponsors featured as well.



Besides the 20+ motorcycle and car magazines I am in a year, I was recently in Oprah Magazine with my 1956 Panhead (probably the first Panhead in Oprah's magazine).  I am the Arkansas Representative for the Global Women Who Ride project and as a woman builder, I recently became the official Ambassador for motorcycle tourism for the entire state of Arkansas.

For the last 12 years I have dedicated my life to volunteering for causes that I am passionate about.  My volunteer work  includes: rescuing pit bulls, hedgehogs and chickens, starting a Camaro Club, holding officer positions in the car and hedgehog communities, hosting/planning events in the car and motorcycle communities, writing for publications, organizing fundraisers for various charities, promoting Arkansas, and donating weekly to thrift stores, shelters and other non-profits.

My articles appear in many publications and websites to empower people to live their best life.  I am super passionate about spreading my love of vintage cars and motorcycles to everyone, young and old, male or female.  I want to let people know that if you have your priorities straight, that you can accomplish almost anything!  I live my life to the fullest, not just for myself, but also for others by constantly promoting people and products that I believe in.  Living well really is the best revenge!

I am accepting other sponsors who would like to donate parts to this project.  I would eventually like to create a support group so that I could pass out brochures, bracelets, T-shirts, etc. 

As I seek "Redemption", may I have the courage and resources to help others.

Got "Redemption" up on the bike lift the other day. Have to go pick up some parts I bought in Eureka Springs and then I should be able to post an updated photo of the progress I am making.
