“You can’t stop what’s done to you, you can only survive it.” And somewhere in the process we must forgive in order to truly move forward.
That is what I am trying to do. God is helping me and my friends.
The first helpful thing was being heard, validated. “I know that you were raped. I also know that you survived and are taking back your life and your power.”
Thanks for believing me. It’s a hard thing to come forward, to say it. And being heard is EVERYTHING!
I can’t take back what was done, I can only learn to move forward.
Onward I go,
