I’m loving the fact that every day, I’m proving my abuser wrong, and that I am capable of love and being loved. I am capable of writing and dreaming, and being brave enough to dream. I’m me, and I no longer make apologies for it.

Always be you. Eventually, if that day hasn't come already, you'll find the people that accept you as you are. Without question. Until then, leave the rest of them behind.

I know the genesis of every scar on my body, even the invisible ones. I know what kinds of demons go bump in the night. I know what it’s like to be haunted, used, and walked over repeatedly. But worst of all, I know what it’s like to stand on the other side of perfection. I’m flawed. I’m broken. But I’m one hell of a fighter. A survivor. The kind Virgil would appreciate. I don’t bother to compete with the perception of perfection. Because I know I’m being authentic to myself and to my readers.

I’m not perfect. No one is. And I see right through you and this façade of self-validation. So feel free to criticize, mock, and pretend all you want. I’ll stay with the crowd that embraces who they are and welcomes me with open arms.

How many times a day are we reminded of this shattered community? Why is it not possible to coexist and just write because we must? That's what I've always done, and that's what I'll continue to do.

This piece was inspired by a song called Words As Weapons by Birdy. Sometimes words hurt more than actions. And sometimes it's meant to cut deep to boost an ego. But if we are lucky, we won't show our weaknesses. We'll hide them away until we're alone. Where no one will see us cry. That's when the bullies lose their power over us. That's when we win. Even if it's only to delay the pain a little longer.

I’m trying to look at everything in a positive perspective. Before the memories changed my life forever, I was a different person. I was a part of polite society, I worked, and most of it was normalcy. But then I was flooded with more memories, worse than before, and I couldn’t function the way I was. It might be hell in some ways, but it was the beginning of this journey. And I can’t be upset about that. Because I’m living my dreams.
