Sometimes in life an artist writes a song and you feel it was meant for you.
Or at least that's how I feel.
Music is my therapy....you can judge my mood based if my music.
Kesha's new song really strikes a cord with me! Some days I can listen to it just fine, others I cry and others I just shut the radio off.
As a #sexualassultwarrior it's a painful song to listen to. But I get it.
Allowing yourself to forgive someone for such a horrible act is sometimes thought to be impossible....some may even claim foolish. But holding on to all that hurt, anger, disgust, you're only hurting yourself.
I'm not saying I'm "okay"! I'll never be "over" that night. All it takes is someone to repeatedly say "stops it" or to touch my face and I'll flip out! I have flashbacks.....I always will.
But it's how I respond to those flashbacks that matters. I run, hit the weights, take a shower, go sit by myself, or crank up some music.
I no longer give the person the power to control my life. My happiness, my self worth.
I pray they pray for me & the harm they inflicted.
I pray for you and any awful event you've been through or are currently going through.
This is part of why I'm in a mission to #spreadjoy & #bethechange
Talking about this I hope helps someone know they are not alone, it was not their fault & they can move past this.
