I am sorry that monster did that to you , I don't know you but I am glad that you are happy and wish you the best
This is the first story I have read on this site. I told a friend what happened to me so she sent me here. My story happens to be remarkably similair to yours. Thank you for sharing. It feels good to know that someone else who wasn't necesarily raped or anything can get consequences and move on in their life, not be scarred.
Yes, you win. Stay idealistic. The world is a beautiful and wonderful place just waiting to be explored. Don't ever let anyone rob you of that.
I think the best part of reading your story is reading that you got therapy! All too often people share their story without mentioning the healing process. Congratulations! Congratulations, too, on finding your voice and sharing your story here.
Thank you so much for sharing this. How confusing and scary. This was every bit as abusive and damaging as anything he could have done and I'm so glad you're able to see that. He had NO right! You are strong and incredible.
it takes a lot to open yourself like this and I thank you for sharing the memories and the triumph.
Thank you for sharing your inspiring words with us today. You are so right - you do win, and I applaud you for taking your victory.
You are a triumph. I relate so much to the way you say "I grew increasingly distant while it would take place, abandoning my body to fend for itself as my soul went to somewhere better." I'm so glad you found your way back, to yourself and to your idealism. Thank you so much for sharing your story and inspiring all of us with your resilience.
