I am a silence breaker.
I am strong.
I am not an object.
What you did was not okay.
I spent weeks praying I could go back.
But I can’t.
I can’t unmeet you.
I can’t reverse time, no matter how much I wish I could.
I can’t change what you did.
But I can be the bigger person.
I can rise above this.
I will rise above this.
I am afraid.
I am afraid of meeting another you.
I am afraid of this happening again.
But I am not afraid of you.
I am not afraid of the person I am becoming.
And I am not afraid of how far I have come and how far I’m going to go.
After you did what you did, I doubted myself.
I doubted the people I love and trust.
I doubted that there was a god watching over me.
My faith wavered because I didn't know how he could let this happen to me.
But I know everything happens for a reason.
I will no longer let you or what you did rule my life.
I am stronger than that.
I am stronger than you.
What you did, that will be with me forever, but I will not let that bring me down. I am stronger now than I have ever been. I am more than what you did to me. I will always be afraid of meeting another person like you, but I won’t let that stop me from becoming the strong woman I know I'm meant to be. I will thrive in life because I know I am better than what you did.
I refuse to let you make me feel less than I am.
I refuse to be anything but happy and strong.
