What happened to you will do things to you. It happened. The event itself was transformative and that means you are different.
Give yourself time to feel all that feeling. Give yourself room to rummage through all that pain.
Notice your insides because they’ll scream to become your outside. When that happens, do what is best for you, whatever you think that is. Resist people telling you how to be and how to look and how to behave.
Resist even words like these ones I’ve written when they feel restricting and not freeing.
Freedom is what you need. Freedom is where you’re headed. Freedom is where you’re going.
