He targeted my brother but he would beat me too
My sister was the lucky one, he never hut her like he did us, but still he was our Protector. I knew that my life was going to change forever when my father was diagnosed with bone cancer. He was the Person who kept our very unstable family together. He Passed away when I was 8 ½ years old.
Not long after my sister disclosed her sexual abuse. We were put on a roller coster ride of ups and down that never ended.
I began to cut to relieve the pain.
Someone tried to break me but I’m still here I’m still standing, Standing strong
I got my forever family when I was 16 years old
I began to see the light in what had been a very dark tunnel. I slowly began to believe that I am a beautiful person that has something to give the world. My mom gave me to tools and strength to know that I could Conquer anything. She made me feel truly loved and was the first person to tell me that she was proud of me. I’ll never forget when she told me that no one was going to truly believe in me until I could look in a mirror and believe in myself
Someone tried to break me but I’m still here
I’m still standing, Standing Strong.
