    My Past

    My past consisted of mental abuse, physical abuse, and sexual abuse. It damaged me. I am damaged. I don't think it is possible to completely get over the past.

    I'm Trying Though!

    Some of us have a past that we'd like to forget. However, getting over your past is easier said than done. Some of us deal with it by moving on, some of us...can't. I didn't have a happy childhood, but that's not gonna stop me from living a happy life - on my own terms.

    Well maybe not EVER. But

    when people start confirming things that you always wondered if it was a truth or lie... Drives you insane. I think Id rather not know. I've already spent a lot of time sad about it. Why continue when it's brought up again? UGH!

    Nor do I plan on letting anything out. But recently I'm starting to think no one can relate. Or if I tell someone something they'll think "Oh she's lying" "She wants attention" "If it's true why'd you keep it a secret" So really there's no point in speaking up...

    It Can Be Done

    I had an experience when I was 7 years old, which although it could have been a lot worse, was very traumatic for me at the time. I got over it when I had a nervous breakdown at 23 years old. I kept so much inside & I couldn't carry it around with me anymore.
