I used to think that something was wrong with me, but I've realized that I'm not normal, but I am unique & although I have had some rough times, everyone does. I am trying everyday to get stronger, and not let the things you do or say to people interfere with my life, because I'm NOT letting you hurt me anymore. I am not living my life for you, but I AM going to prove to you and everyone else that you can't break me anymore, you did that before, but it's only made me stronger.
I may have my difficult days, but I have people that I can talk to that have gone through some of the same things that I do everyday when something makes me think of you, or if I smell a certain smell, I may think of something I could do to make it all go away, and just make my life go away, but then I realize once again that I'm not living my life to let you and your family watch me crumble to the ground. I crumbled once, and I'm not planning on doing that again, although I could have a relapse and it could happen again, but like I said I'm getting stronger everyday and I'm not going to let you make a fool of me because of what you did to me and what you let her to do me. I cannot let that ruin my life anymore. I am going to live to tell my story, and live to help other people with theirs.
