Do not mistake this smile for weakness. I've been taught not to take crap from anyone. #real #strong #donotmesswithme #imnotavictim #justwords

I've been hiding these past 2 weeks.

I haven't really been able to talk about my incident that happened, but I feel that if I don't talk about it on here now then I never will. The TIU SD community know the story, but I hope that my story helps one person to come forward and seek help. .

On June 26th, I was assaulted in front of my Emily. I did nothing to provoke the attack. .

It has been over a week since it's happened. While the visible signs of this event are fading the mental effects are consuming every ounce of my day. .

The #toneitup community has been amazing! Between the walks, the coffee and the check-ins I have felt like I can get through this!!

"T'a air d'un siphon de toilettes"

J'ai reçu hier mon premier commentaire haineux et ça m'a ramené à des souvenirs... #strong #imnotavictim #idontcare

Pour l'histoire complète, rendez vous sur ma page Facebook pro.

"For the girl that I knew, who will be reckless just enough. Who gets hurt, but who learns how to toughen up when she's bruised, and gets used by a man who can't love. And then she'll get stuck and be scared of the light that's inside her. Growing stronger each day till it finally reminds her to fight just a little to bring back the fire in her eyes that's been gone but used to be mine." #imnotavictim #imasurvivor #enddomesticviolence

It took me 18 months of hate, anger, depression, denial, jealousy, alcoholism and mental breakdowns to finally understand that I was not a victim in the situation I was in because I stayed after seeing my ex's true colors. I am SO THANKFUL to God for allowing my heart to heal, for giving me my sobriety and peace of mind, for carrying me when I couldn't pick myself up.. I'm the happiest I've been in over 10 years.. mentally, physically and financially I am beyond my dreams.. God is GREAT!! #blessed #peaceofmind #soberlife #sobriety #happy #healthy #mentalhealth #imnotavictim #downfall #comeback #depression #alcoholism #hate #anger #letgoandletgod #healed #strong #strongerthanever #thankful #footprintsinthesand

On this day in 2006, I decided I wanted my independence. ..... 👐💣💥😇☝
What does a abused victim look like? Here you see 2 women smiling. Behind our smiles we lived a life of hell. Many years of abuse. Many friends lost and family members begging us to leave "him". We sat through those relationships in denial and allowed the abuse to continue thinking this is what love is. Not understanding what we were worth and God had a different plan for our lives. We are both survivors and I do mean SURVIVORS, when a man beats and chokes you and you are fighting for your life and come out of it with neighbors surrounding you. You know you have survived! Sometimes we are manipulated to believe we are nothing but a puppet on their string and we will never be anything. We are controlled by him and told what to wear and what we cannot. At times we are told we are ugly and fat. So we begin to destroy ourselves mentally, physically. Life starts slowly slipping through our fingers. Our children began to pull away and we ourselves become isolated. After 10 hospital trips, broken noses, fingers and brain damage we discover how much we have changed. A light bulb goes on and God sends his angels. We discover we are living a life of hell and denial. Suddenly we become like a Lion and Roar with anger and make our own decisions and grab whatever we can with our children and get the hell out! We love ourselves again, have friendships that we missed over the years and find true Love, not something we thought was Love. We begin living and loving and spreading our truths to many others and guiding them by the Grace of God. If you know someone who may be going through abuse PLEASE , PLEASE talk to them. Show support, and be their friend. Make them see life different. Most of all pray for their strength to make the right choice. ☝💖 We are victors, not victims! ☝

And today I release myself.
9 month ago, after a night out, I was _raped_ by a “friend” in my own bed. It crushed my whole world. It destroyed everything I believed in. For weeks I just wanted to die because living in a world that allows this to happen didn’t make sense anymore. Not soon enough but I reported the _rape_ to the police and I’m still waiting for the outcome.
But today I did something that I couldn’t have imagined doing a few months ago. Today I got a new tattoo that always will remind me of everything that had happened since that night. Since then I’ve found my real profession in the speciality coffee world. Since then I’ve met my best friend I’ve always been waiting for. Since then I know that no matter what I am worthy of living. Since then (cliché alert) I’ve realised that I am a strong independent woman who could achieve whatever the fuck she wants. Since then I’ve become the person I always wanted to be. All these because of that night. Gratitude is a strong word but I might send a postcard to my _rapist_ in 10 years time to tell him how far I’ve come because of him.
And why this tattoo? I could say the “sunny and dark side of the life” bullshit but that’s not it. The tattoo represents two of my friends who had helped me since the night of the _rape_. One of them is the yin to my yang, the sun to my moon, the daylight to the darkness. The other friend of mine is an artist whose work is underpinned by a coding system. He’s using dots to reshape information and think about alternative ways of seeing the world around us.
With this tattoo I want to be reminded of my strengths and I want to say thank you to these amazing people for helping me through something that should never happen to anyone.
