My rapists and abusers will never take away the power I now feel from knowing that I am worth so much more than the pain they inflicted upon my body and mind. They will never take away the hope I have found in the trauma healing process. I am thankful for my scars, visible and invisible, because they serve to show how far I have come and how strong I have become. I may never forget what they did to me, but I now have the ability to speak truth through my experiences to others who have experienced similar traumas: YOU ARE LOVED BEYOND BELIEF AND YOU DESERVE TO FEEL SAFE AGAIN. Keep fighting. You are so worth it.
