Because of my experiences, I am more determined now than ever to be who I truly am.
I am a strong woman because I have turned my pain into power. I have used my past experiences and trauma as a reason to live each and every day to the fullest. I honestly can’t imagine my life any other way.
What I have gone through as a sexual abuse survivor has made me a stronger person. I am kind, I am compassionate, I am loving. I will not let the actions of my abuser ruin the rest of my life or even one more day.
Every day is not easy and probably never will be, but I am strong because I can overcome the bad and not let it consume me. Because of my experiences, I am more determined now than ever to be who I truly am. I was once taken advantage of, but now I am in control. I will follow my dreams no matter what. I have never loved myself more than I do today and I am so proud of that. I am a strong and empowered woman who has taken her life back, along with all the other sister survivors.
We have endured so much, but we won’t let our pasts define us. We will use our pasts to make a difference.
