MOST RECENT

You're here, you're a human being, you get to do life - so please, don't waste it 💖 For far too long I spent my time doing shit I hated to make other people happy and because it was all I knew. I was scared to leave that path for the unknown, and I was scared of failing 😐 But it's now a year on and I look back on who I was then and wish I could just shake myself to wake up. I wasn't living, I was simply existing. Have you ever felt like that?

So, you've lost your job?
Your business failed?
You marriage is over?
You want to go back to school?
IT'S OKAY TO START OVER.
Having to start over is not a sign of failure. Giving up is!!!

Some days she’s bound to be clothed in tiredness, sickness, anxiety, loneliness. Right? Some days she has forgotten who she is, she’s so busy wishing she was someone else. She’s forgot that SHE is unique & worst of all she’s forgotten that SHE IS incredibly loved by her Father God. The one that made her & created her for a purpose. Is that you? Because some days that’s me. I guess some days we forget. We get distracted. We care more about what’s going on around us than in us.
-
Lovely lady! Hold onto His strength, some days that can be literally holding on by the very tips of your fingers or trying to see through a waterfall of tears. Lets unite. Let’s remind each other & encourage each other, that we are worthy. Worthy women of God. With PURPOSE. Then fear & doubt, will gradually dispel & you’ll laugh, rejoice, lift up your hands in worship, cos you’ll remember who you really are, that He holds onto you & that He holds your future! -

This is the tactic my abuser used for years. Still does. No matter what he said or did, I was automatically the toxic person for having a response to his mistreatment. To him, everything I did was wrong. Anything I posted on my own social media that mirrored my feelings was wrong. Defending myself, wrong. If I said anything, really...I was wrong. I believed this to the point that I stayed quiet about the things he'd done to me for years. He didn't want a person. He wanted a scapegoat.

A person in power cannot be abused by the person they are oppressing. Power & abuse cannot operate that way. You do not deserve any of it. You're a human being and deserve to be treated as such.
Call them out for what they are: abusive.

"Silence may benefit your abuser, but it will never benefit you."
.
.
.

For a very long time, I didn't tell anyone about what actually happened with my abuser. Even when he was telling everyone that I was the issue. I didn't stand up for myself. I didn't fight. I didn't scream. I stayed quiet & never said a word.

I remember telling him once that I would never want to make him feel the way he made me feel. This is still true. But the fact of the matter is, he treated me as if I were worthless. He did not respect me. It was so much more that him "not being nice" to me. He did not treat me like a person. Healing from dehumanization is difficult, but possible. My healing officially started the moment I finally made some noise.

Your allowed to make noise when you're being hurt. You're allowed to make your boundaries known. You owe no one you.
I finally gave myself permission to speak up this year. That is because I know I'm worthy. Regardless of what he ever said or did to me. I've always been worthy. Know that you are, too.

Love doesn't not destroy. It builds. .
.
.
.
For a long time, I excused a lot of my abuser's behavior not only because he was depressed, but because I loved him. No matter what he did, (call me out my name, dismiss me, invalidate my feelings, gaslighting, nonverbal threats, overall disrespect for my well-being), I somehow believed that that wasn't the real him. I kept holding onto this idea of the fun, smart, charming kid I met at a school dance one day. I didn't realize that that person was only for introductions. It was a performance. Crafted to not only pull me in, but keep me hoping that he would come back around even when there were no signs of him. He never did.
The red flags were there. But it's hard to see red in rose-colored shades. I tolerated it all because I believed that's what love was. It isn't. I have a new love now. He doesn't tear me down. He builds me up. He cherishes me. He says he loves me. He loves me. That is the kind of love we all deserve. Never the abuse. Never the disrespect.

Do you ever find yourself thinking, “I don’t fit in”? Happy Tuesday loves - maybe you’re not supposed to “fit in”? Maybe you’re supposed to stand out, be different, break the mold, say/do the ‘wrong, scary, bold’ thing & encourage change? Maybe the world NEEDS your magic to try something new, Transform, & create more space for love? Don’t hide your “weird”. Despite feeling alone now, I promise you there are people who can relate, who are ready to celebrate you, & who will welcome your “weird” like a breath of fresh air! ✌🏼💜😊

"It took me over a year to share my story because I thought silence would protect me. It didn't. All it did was eat away at my emotional, physical and mental health. The moment I decided to speak up for myself and let it be known what my abuser had done to me was the most freeing, empowering experience of my life. That is what prompted me to start #IAmNoVictim, so that other young survivors of abuse like myself could have a place to share their story, be heard and stand proud despite what happened to them. We survived. Not only are we healing, but we are thriving. There are others like us who need to see that. That is what I AM NO VICTIM is all about." - Our Founder .

"We gravitate towards broken people, not because we want to fix them, but because we want to fix ourselves. The line between selflessness and selfishness is thin and intangible. It’s imaginary. We can’t see it. People project their problems onto other people’s problems. It happens all the time. We see ourselves in each other. We can’t help it. It’s human nature." - Kriss Kid

This post pretty much wraps up everything that has happened with my abuser. The last thing he said to me was "You're worthless to me. I hope you're miserable for the rest of your life." I wished him joy.
When I met him, he was battling his own demons. I recognized them in him. I thought that because they looked like my own, I'd be able to help him. Unfortunately, hurt people know how to hurt other people. Except when he hurt me, he used it as a way to feel better about himself. He's aware of his actions, but feels no remorse. I spent almost a full year of my life feeling guilty for my own abuse because of this. That ended when I realized other people's problems are not my own. I couldn't bear the weight of things that don't belong to me. It almost ended my life. I let it go.

The only person you can fix is yourself. Let everything else be. It's not yours to carry. .

"If you're going to forgive, start with yourself first." ✨

The work of forgiveness has been the most difficult part of my recovery. Learning to forgive my abuser is still a task I work on daily to perfect. It's safe to say that after all I endured, I hated him. For gaslighting me. His walk-on-eggshells like anger. For telling me I was worthless. Making me feel interchangeable. For the parts of my body I'm still trying to reconcile with. The violence. For the toxicity I'm still trying to unlearn. For him masquerading his abuse as "love". Sure, everybody & my therapist kept telling me that in order to let all of it go, it would need to forgive. But how?

If I wanted to forgive him, I needed to first forgive myself. For being the woman I was when I was with him. For being the woman who stayed despite how badly he treated me. For allowing him to continue his smear campaign against me. For being too afraid to stand up & speak my truth. For not saying something sooner. All of it. I had to forgive myself. I'm learning to. .
.
Whenever it is that I do master this forgiveness, it will not be for him. Forgiveness is not for your abuser. It's for the parts of you that survived. My goal isn't to "forgive and forget", but to remember, release and recover. .

After my abuser would hurt me, his favorite thing to say wasn't "I'm sorry", but "You know I didn't mean it." It was like clockwork. I'd do anything, he'd get upset, curse me out, I'd profusely apologize for whatever he felt I'd done wrong. He'd isolate me as punishment for however long he saw fit, and then finally, he'd come back again. With all the love he knew I'd been missing and his favorite line..."You know I didn't mean it." They always mean it. The mind games. The hurtful things they say. The violence against you. All of it is backed by intent. The intention to break you down to the point that you will do everything and anything they ask. It's all about how much power they can have over you. If you learn anything from this post, know this:
They always mean it.

Such a beautiful message with an important reminder. Fear does not make you weak. Being vulnerable does not mean you are powerless. It is your strength. Being "soft" and experiencing your emotions as strongly as you do simply means that you are here. Living. In spite of all the fear, trauma and hurt you've dealt with. You've gotta feel it to heal it. Sometimes, fear and pain aren't always present to hurt you. They are there to show you what needs to be done. Whether that's leaving a relationship. Or, taking time to find yourself. Fear and pain can push you forward into something greater. You just need to allow it. .

If any of the information here reminds you of your own relationship, do not be afraid of reporting. That person has no right to you. It's okay to make noise if you are hurting. It is not okay for someone to hurt you and decide that they didn't. It's okay to ask for help. You do/did not deserve it. There is life after this. You just have to choose it.

"You've got to learn to leave the table when love is no longer being served." - Nina Simone

There's a special peace that comes along when you finally make that choice to leave. It's never easy. It can be the most painful experience of your life. But sometimes, pain can be a catalyst for something greater. Be that a greater relationship, a greater life, or simply a better version of you.

It's easy to get wrapped up in caring for a person who does not care for you. I've been there. They'll put on performances. Blame you for their shortcomings. Make you feel as if you aren't enough, so you try your hardest to prove that you are. You believe that one day they'll change. That one day, they'll finally see how much of yourself you've sacrificed for their benefit.
I will go not only where love is being served, but where my love is celebrated. l will not serve from an empty plate again. And before I serve others, I will serve myself first. Always. ✨ .

. "I used to get on myself for not being okay by the time I thought I should be. Days, weeks, months and years would pass by, but I'd still feel like I was stuck in the same place. I didn't understand it. Why couldn't I move on?

I was in an abusive relationship for 5 years. Once that ended, I didn't know what to do with myself. I didn't feel the same. Sure, technically I was free. But it didn't feel that way. Everything he had ever said and done to me was still floating around my head. I felt trapped in my own mind. No matter what I did, or how much time passed, those thoughts were still there. It took me forever to realize that that's because I still believed them. All of them. That I was worthless. A waste of time. That I deserved whatever he did to me. I believed him.
The moment I stopped believing in my abuser is when I learned to believe in myself. Thank you, 2016 for bringing an end to the worst experience of my life. Thank you 2017 for the room you gave me to heal.
2018, I'm ready for you.
