Survivor means I lived to tell the story.

I will tell the story even though the ones who hurt me made me sure that no-one would ever believe me.

I will tell the story even though it is a boring story because only I can tell it.

The ones who bully and abuse are the ones who are out of control. They told me I was irresponsible and unreasonable.

The ones who bully and abuse are the ones who cannot cope. They told me I was sick or mad.

The ones who bully and abuse are the ones who are trapped. They told me I could never get away, never survive alone.

They are all the same now, the ones who tried to control and hurt and trap and confuse and diminish and destroy and shame me.

They are all in the past, they cannot hurt me now.
