I was abused when I was a kid. I wish I could say that I've gotten over it, that I've moved on with my life. Its been 13 years now since my step-dad was arrested and stopped being part of my life. I'm 25 now and should be able to stop feeling like I'm constantly being evaluated for my worth. But I don't. I let my step-dad be a mental judge of everything I do. I let myself drag my self worth down to nothing. I wish I was a better person. More confident and secure.
