Dhylles: When did you realize you were born an accomplishment?
Dominique: All of my life I knew I was special but how special I am did not come into full fruition until I had developed a relationship with Jesus Christ. On this journey, or Christ walk, I discovered “All things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to HIS PURPOSE. I look back over my life, as far back as my childhood and I finally realized that my trials, my pain, my experience was not for me but to help someone else. I am fearfully and wonderfully made, wonderful are the works of HIS hands and my souls boasts of it. I thank God that He showed me whose I am and that I have a purpose in this life.
Dhylles: How long did it take you to accept your imperfections and what held you back from accepting?
Dominique: I just recently began to accept my imperfections because I hid behind a wall that was built in my childhood. As the child in my small family, the only grand and niece for more than ten years, an American Born child to a French West Indian family, I was groomed to be perfect because of my place of birth, because I was the one who was destined to break every generational curse against the family. No one cared about my feelings and the pressure that was put on me. I had to succeed at all cost because failure was never an option. And when Indis meet the expectation, there were no encouraging words, but disappointments.
Dhylles: What does being vulnerable mean to you and is it a strength or weakness?
Dominique: I once viewed vulnerability as a weakness. I remember when I heard the voice of the Lord told me to be vulnerable before His people. I told God NO! I am not doing that, I will never let anyone see me as weak… I will not allow anyone into my inner world BEHIND the wall. This encounter happened in 2010. I was at a broken place in my life. The only thing that kept me afloat was the mask of “perfection” that was plastered to my face. But the mask cracked one day and I didn’t know how to deal. People were seeing the hurt and the pain in my life and it began to manifest in my actions and dealings with people. Vulnerability is no longer a weakness, but a source of strength that helps other women gain strength.
Dhylles: When did you learn to heal and forgive yourself for past mistakes and regrets?
Dominique: I am still learning the art of self forgiveness.
Dhylles: Thanks so much Dominique!!
