#MeToo

"I will never forgive you for what you did. But I will forever use the lessons I learned."

Flashbacks, 

Nightmares,

Crying spells,

Breakdowns,

Feeling of Disgust,

Hating Yourself.

Yet we’re still blaming the victim

Asking questions like

“Are you sure you didn’t say yes?”

“Or what were you wearing?”

“Or were you asking for it?”

My story is that it was him

The man who was supposed to protect me 

Against what he did 

He was supposed to hold my hand

And protect me against all the monster under my bed  

He was supposed to teach me how to be safe

He was supposed to be the one who kept me safe

Yet he’s the one who broke me the most

But maybe all of this made me stronger too

Like everyone says 

“What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger”

So maybe there’s a reason it happened

Maybe it was to make me stronger

Or maybe to show me that no one in this world can be trusted 

Or maybe it was to turn me into the person I am today 

Cause if he didn’t do what he did

I would never have learned to fight 

Or to stand up for myself 

Or to learn how to never be in the dark about anyone

So here’s my message to him:

Thank you for breaking me into pieces 

Thank you for ruining my childhood 

Thank you for making me paranoid about everything 

Thank you for everything you did to me 

I will never forgive you for what you did 

But I will forever use the lessons I learned.
