There's something about me I don't talk about much, not because it's a sensitive subject, because it's not. But because I've worked hard to stop classifying myself as a victim. And even though you might classify me as one after what I went through, I learned that victimizing myself didn't serve me.
In a span of two years, I went through two abusive relationships. The first being emotionally and mentally abusive and the second be all of the above: physical, sexual, financial, emotional, mental.... It was the most depressing time of my life. For two years, I had my feelings suppressed, my thoughts belittled, my presence hidden, my words neglected, my looks criticized. I let someone take my voice from me and I let them define my reality. I had always been soft spoken and quiet, but for two years I was practically silenced.
Even though it took some time for me to rediscover myself, once I did, I vowed to myself that I would never let my voice go unheard again. I speak my mind and I'm not ashamed of it. I say what I mean and I mean what I say. I tell people how I feel without holding back. Most people who didn't know my story would call me rude, impolite, talkative, obnoxious, annoying, disrespectful, maybe even angry, and bitchy. And that's far from the truth. I just have a lot to say and I'm done being silenced.
I speak my truth now because what are you accomplishing by keeping it in? Nothing will ever change if you don't speak up. Always speak your truth and never let anyone silence your spirit.
