What am I most proud of?
Besides my children, I think that my biggest accomplishment was becoming a survivor instead of a victim. It was not an easy transformation.
I knew that I was not a victim anymore when I saw the dude last year at the store. He talked and I kept walking. I still bought my things at the store. He sent me an email a few months ago. He said his tone was unpleasant. Unpleasant? Unpleasant does not even begin to describe how much damage this person did to me and my family.
So I will continue to live my life in spite of his unpleasantness. It has taken a long time to get to the point of not caring what he does or what he thinks. Here I am. I’m not anyone’s victim anymore.
