I Have a Voice



Once this happened, I felt like a huge part of me was lost.  A piece of me changed.  I still feel like me but a piece of my happiness has been stolen.  I've read other blogs saying I didn't deserve this, I deserve justice.  I want so much for this feeling to go away, and does it take me reporting to do that?   I have read articles of people saying it was the best thing they ever did.  I never thought I'd need to report the awful thing that lingers in my thoughts day after day night after night.  It is so horrible, I push it the back of my mind and pretend I've moved on.  If I can't not think about it, do I live my life knowing I was wronged and that's just the way it is.  I can't be silent, I can't not report--is the way I am feeling now.  Why do I live feeling shameful for someone taking advantage of my body.  I want to enjoy my life, but is what has happened supposed to stay with me.  Survivor stories mean people move on not stay in this state of helplessness.  I know many others have lived stories similar to mine and I find reassurance in the fact so many people have spoke.  I think it is soon my time to speak up.  I have gone through years of just being a victim, not standing up and saying this happened.
