Enough

Posted by sailor , 08 December 2013 · 129 views

I am a victim.
I was neglected.
Molested.
Tortured.
Manipulated.
Controlled.
Brainwashed.
Raped.
 
This was not all done by one person.
 
I live with PTSD.
 
I have to remind myself that each statement can be left as is. I don't have to explain further. I don't have to compare my experiences to what others have gone through.
I have always minimized what happened. Until this month, I never called myself a victim. I didn't believe I deserved that title, because true victims have been through worse. What I went through wasn't bad enough to be so upset over.
 
But as I deactivate the filter that changes the events... when I get down to the core of each experience, I can let myself believe how bad it was.
