For years I thought about writing my memoirs, but I could never muster enough belief in myself. Then in 2016, I became an American citizen. It was an empowering and life-changing experience. I had always looked at Americans as a bold and fearless people. Now, I had become one. The writing could begin immediately. I grew up in a poor and dysfunctional family in Denmark. Sadness and inadequacies were normal in my world. Fear, depression, shame and guilt followed quickly. Why was life so difficult? Why did I feel like a second-class person? When I became pregnant at 20-years-old, I began to look at myself with new eyes. I realized that besides being an ever-smiling pleasing machine, I didn’t know myself at all. At that moment in time, a fog began to lift from my brain. It was the fog that had prevented me from seeing and feeling my own truth. The lifting fog began to reveal truths and family secrets that could never be told. If you tell, you will die. I believed their lies. This book is about my transformation from a very scared and depressed victim to the proud American woman I am today. It took courage to write this book.
