Come On Girl, Show Him What You Can Do
I want you to be free. You may not realize yet, just how strong and capable you are. Physically you may be weak. Your face and limbs may be bruised and battered. Emotionally you may be broken. But you, dear one, are powerful. And the strongest muscle you have is your tongue. So please, tell me your story. Your past stories. Your present story. Your fear of the future. Your hopes for the future.
Change is frightening, fear of the unknown cripples us and keeps us prisoner. Help is here. Help is out there. But if you don’t talk to anyone, no one knows how to help you. If, like me, you smile through the pain and hide the truth; if you keep secret what happens when no one is looking…then you are aiding your abuser. Someone once said, “The first time he hits you, you are a victim. The second time he hits you, you are a volunteer”. While I don’t agree wholeheartedly with that comment… because there are many compartments to the rationale of a victim…there is a lot of truth to it.
You don’t have to be the victim any longer. You don’t have to volunteer to be a punching bag ever again. You deserve a happy life.
I am looking forward to watching you soar…and hearing you roar, even while you’re in the fire. Especially while you’re in the fire. That’s when you should roar the loudest.
