Taina in her own words
I was sceptical as to how much one weekend could mean to me. But as I listened to others and shared my story, I started to understand what was bothering me. I was trying to hide in order not to be hurt. This hiding caused me pain and loneliness, because I wasn’t being my authentic self.
I had not understood this, but as I heard the same pain and loneliness from others, I finally understood. I decided there and then, that I didn’t want to me a bystander of life. Even if I got hurt, I would live true to myself. After this epiphany nothing has been the same. They say I even look different. It only took that one weekend for everything to change.
