Making It In High Heels

Inspiring Stories by Women for Women of All Ages

Antonietta allows us into her past,  her childhood experiences, and her inner-most memories of her troubled family life.  She carries on to recall high school being her darkest days, filled with racial tension and derogatory comments, struggles with her classes, and embarrassment to ask for help.

Antonietta talks of relationships in high school and how her bottled up insecurity and stress eventually got the better of her. Through countless encounters of struggle, Antonietta clearly talks to the readers of Making It In High Heels with a different perspective…one she achieved through growing up and acceptance.

~I had never had any mentors in my life. Most people looked to their parents for mentoring or idealism, but mine were the last people I was likely to look to. Instead, I resented and blamed them for all the struggles and stress in my life. I made it my mission to prove that I can do better. I had always wanted so much from them that I was blind to what I already had. My mother always told me that I had to stop blaming others,; I have looked at underlying reasons and I’m an adult and I do take responsibilities for my actions and choices.~

The pain of feeling neglected as a child drove Belinda Brady to want the rest of the world to love her!  Being the youngest child of many, and having divorced parents, made Belinda’s journey into the entertainment world a tough dream to chase.

Although Belinda admits to having lost herself many times along the way, she reflects to the guidance she sought in a higher power.  She had been on the brink of self-destructive behavior, financial and emotional hardships, and she faced personal demons such as anger and disappointment along the way.

~ When I reflect on the past, I feel more secure about the personal and professional choices I’ve made. I’m not perfect though; everyday continues to be a struggle. I realize that wanting to be a superstar was not so much the desire to become a Janet Jackson, Britney or Madonna. Instead, I believe I wanted to be loved and accepted by everyone.  Subconsciously, it made sense to me that if the world loved me, the pain of my neglected childhood would vanish.~
