I’m amazed at your strength. I feel it’s not easy for you to talk and write about this stuff and yet you are slowly, bit by bit, facing it, examining it, discovering the lies you believed from it. As you do so you’re slowly recognising the abuse for what it was and that’s great. Therein too lies your healing.
You’re doing great, you really are. I’m really sorry you were so badly let down by the justice system. But good on you for exposing the truth!! I hope one day you will heal up to the extent where you can feel safe around males. I know it really hurts you that you don’t and why.
I’m very proud of you. You’re doing really well! You’ve come a long way. You’re on your way! There is hope for you! You’re an amazingly strong, honest gutsy woman. Don’t give up, keep on going. Keep on telling the truth. You’re making phenomenal progress. You truly are!! I just want you to know how proud I am of you. You amaze and astound me!!
