i went to 2 places in the town i live in yesterday that i have been avoiding out of fear of seeing my abuser, he is in prison now for what he did to me.
yesterday i got up the courage to go to these places that i was avoiding. i knew i was safe and i told myself that. i did it !
i had a bit of a wobble in a shopping centre, thought i was ok to walk off from my friend. then panicked felt my heart racing and quickly went back to him. but i still did it !
im reclaiming the places i lost. i know that i could still his family and friends in these places but im fed up of hiding... i havent done anything wrong ! they want to scream abuse at me then let them, they should be ashamed of themselves for doing so !
im proud and i feel safe, and it may not have been easy but i stayed strong for myself !
