I am a free adult.
I live 2,000 miles away, and even if I wasn’t, you canNOT hurt me anymore.
I am not defined by my illnesses.
I am not defined by the abuse from my parents.
I am not even defined by my association with them.
I am not in Boston right now. I am present; I am in Colorado.
This is the clearest my brain has been in years.
I can shower.
I want to clean my room.
I want to explore the mountains.
And one of the most important things in the world to me, I WANT TO TEACH.
My illnessesThe effects of my parents’ abuse took that away from me. But I am here now. I am me. I am sober, clear-minded, strong, free, me.
I am my own person. I am worthy. I am loved. I can do what I want to do. I live my life for me.
I have been crying so hard, I’ve had to be aware of not being loud from it because I don’t want my roommates to hear me.
Jessica Jones conquered the source of her trauma. I can do the same.
This show has just given me freedom. It has given me release.
You can’t hurt me now. I got away from you. I knew I could.
I want to train my brain to be this clear all the time.
