I bought this bracelet, because it reminds me I am free of past abusers. I am no longer captive to them. They are not in my life. I am free of them.
I am not free of the consequences of all their abuse, but I am free of ‘them’.
I am not free of current abuse, I am in an unhealthy marriage, but I survived all the other abuse – I will survive this too.
This bracelet reminds me every day now, I can survive ….. I always do ….. and I always will. And I will do it on my own, because I always have.
I don’t ‘need’ anyone. I can take care of myself. I have done all my life.
I am, and will always be, that solitary bird …….. flying free.
I could write a poem about this.
