I am so sorry that you endured so much abuse and pain. You are loved, you are worthy and the things that happened to you were not your fault. You were a child that was victimized, especially by those that should have protected you.
The burden of guilt and shame you carried for much of your life was not yours to carry. Hurting yourself with drugs, alcohol and men who mistreated you, only gave those who hurt you more power.
I’m so happy you realized that and took your power back. You deserve the life and the freedom you have today.
You didn’t tell anyone then, but now my darling take every chance you get to tell. That’s the best way to release the burden from you and put perpetrators on notice, NO MORE. Speak up and speak out now and forever.
Finally, I love you.
