I'm just going to put it right out there. This post is about abuse. It is about the fact that those among us, including myself, need to overcome the shame and anger of having been abused. It's not our usual happy-joy-joy. So here's a photo of a marmoset staring at its hand at the animal park today to tide you over.
"A little less conversation, a little more action" does not apply to the subject of abuse. Why? Because talking about it is the most important step. By opening up a dialogue, you can begin to work through the issues. Whether it be physical, mental, emotional or sexual abuse, raising awareness for the victims will break the cycle.
I have mentioned before my physical and mental abuse in primary school, as well as the sexual and severe physical abuse in early highschool. I was ashamed about this for a very long time. But I won't be any longer. I refuse to be any more. I was tortured in primary school, and I was raped by my first boyfriend for a year and half. It won't ever go away, not really, but it can get better. I will not be in the shadow of other people's cruelty any more.
Living in your fear, shame and anger is letting them win. It is important to let everything go. You are better than them. You are not them. You will never be them.
Please share your stories. I will be here to support you and help you. Break the cycle of abuse.
Much love to you all.
