A note to all the survivors of trauma, domestic violence, sexual assault
A note to all the girls who’ve had their heart broken by someone who was much less deserving of them
The best punishment you could ever give your oppressor is to be happy, to move forward with your life. To accomplish all the things that you want to do. To show them that that their cruelty does not define who you become.
By feeling sorry for yourself, by holding onto the past and reliving it, is only allowing them to steal more of your life away from you. They don’t deserve that. They have no power over you anymore. They are not entitled to that luxury.
The pain they gave you was an unwanted gift. You shouldn’t have been given it, but you can turn it into a force that will never be reckoned with again.
