Hear Lizzie's story

Lizzie's story of holding onto hope after being sexually abused as a child and struggling with addictions.

About the episode

Lizzie is a Lifeline help seeker, Life Mentor and Emotional Health Advocate.

She was sexually abused by a close family member for nearly 7 years as a child. She struggled with addictions - binge eating & drinking & self-loathing and perfectionism. Constantly lived with guilt, shame, pain and internal anger.

Only at 27, she opened up about the years of abuse. Not long after, she reached rock bottom. Her darkest hour. She contemplated ending her life. In that moment, she reached out to Lifeline for help and started her journey of healing and wellbeing.

Now Lizzie has found inspiration, forgiveness, connection and her true purpose to live free, happy and inspire others to do the same.
