Letter to my abuser

You can call me stupid. Call me wrong. Call me incapable. Call me names I cannot even repeat. You can spread your lies. Convince others. Build a whole army of puppet followers who all agree with you. You can convince a friend of mine. Turn someone I love against me. You can find the evidence that you need. Point out my flaws. Cast a spotlight on each insecurity. You can get inside my head. You can even break me down. Bring me to my knees, alone on a cold, hard floor, and you might think then, that you’ve won…

but tomorrow, I will stand up. I will take another step forward, no matter how small or how shaky. And I will know that you will never get the best of me, because even as I stumble through this fucked up world, it is love I hold inside my heart, and you can never make me hate.

  1. “But tomorrow, I will stand up. I will take another step forward, no matter how small or how shaky. And I will know that you will never get the best of me, because even as I stumble through this fucked up world, it is love I hold inside my heart, and you can never make me hate.” You made me cry. Really hit a chord there. This is beautiful, and just what I needed after I suffered a setback today. I got a migraine headache after seeing his facebook profile picture. Nothing weird, the guy’s just tanning in an infinity pool… It’s been three years, one month and 13 days since I left him. Your blog is truly inspiring. Thank you for reminding me this process is not as lonely as it seems. Really, thank you.
