Not so long ago, your words had power. They instantly affected me, invoking guilt, sadness, worry.
But I’m stronger now, I KNOW that I deserve to be treated with respect and dignity and your words are merely a reflection of you. Not me, you.
I have the power now, to choose what’s important to me. To make my decisions based on my own assessment and experience.
I am in charge now.
And it’s scary and empowering all at the same time.
