This was sent to me today, to remind me how strong I am. I do realise how strong I am , to have survived it all. Particularly as the first 20 years of my life, these types of people, were all I knew. I was raised by them and surrounded by them. Abused horrifically by them. It is a miracle I am here at all.
I need to remember every day – I am not defined by what they all did to me. I am defined by all I have survived and all I am overcoming.
I have been receiving so much support, compassion and kindness this week. It really is quite amazing.
