As ACE scores increase, so do the consequences. A person with a score of 4 or more ACE’s has a life expectancy of 20 years less than someone with no ACEs. Mental illness becomes more common place for those with high ACE scores and studies have shown that their likelihood of attempting suicide rises by 1200%.
When faced with normal life stressors, adults who suffer from ACEs will have a much harder time overcoming such stressors due to the lack of development in the part of the brain that assists with making rational decisions. The lack of awareness causes this generational cycle of trauma to repeat itself, most often unknowingly.
The world is on the ground floor of awareness staring up at the top of a scale that is ready to tip at any moment and the odds are not in the ACE’s favor.
ACE’s Matter is dedicated to beating the dealer of adversity with research, awareness, education and solutions to stop this cycle of abuse.
This is not how life is supposed to be, so now what?
We hold! Not fold!
For many children in America, the cards seem to be stacked against them, very much out of their control. Many children are conceived into ACEs, thus experiencing traumas from the very womb that was designed to protect them. Some of us with ACEs are struggling and repeating the actions of our parents unknowingly, while others want to change but have no clear path to do so.
There is Hope! Many are waking up to implications of childhood trauma and taking steps to heal. ACEs Matter sees this as a call for help and we will be there to answer the call. ACE’s Matter is here to help hold you up, support you and prepare you for a future that God designed to prosper and not to harm you. You are not alone.
Get plugged in through our Facebook page and reach out so we can move forward together and hold each other up until we all make it safely to the other side. DO NOT FOLD, folding is a sign that you have a weak hand and God gave all of us the strength to go ALL IN.
The walk won’t be easy, but you will never be abandoned, neglected, or rejected once you take this step with us. Just imagine the mark you will leave on humanity by HOLDING on to the cards you were dealt and using them responsibly for all of HUMANITY.
It is time to #ShiftTheStatistics and be a part of changing humanity instead of ignoring humanity!
