I am still on the days following my physical assault, I am still scared, I am still in shock, but I am no longer blaming myself or the mundane factors from that night. I think it is necessary for me to display my vulnerability and my current state so that you can see that though the attack did not cause me much visibly physical damage, the most destructive damage is at times the pain we do not get to see. This has ignited a flame in me to present myself as another person on a journey of self discovery and self love. One thing which resonates with me throughout this process is a quote I once heard on an episode of Grey's Anatomy, which stated "that the scariest thing about death is surviving and deciding that you actually have a life to live", to this I say, I am worth surviving.
