I Was Embarrassed, But Now I Am Strong


One of the hardest things I ever did was finally saying to myself out loud that I AM A SURVIVOR. I was broken and ashamed by someone else’s actions. I cannot remember when my abuse started, but I do know it ended when I finally spoke up. No child should have to know the pain of keeping such a dark secret inside. I am so thankful for Saprea. I was embarrassed, but now I am strong, and I will heal. I may have to remind myself often that I am enough but when I say it, I mean it now. I hope every survivor can find their way to healing so that you will be happy and free.
