Hi Ann — I definitely feel this. Especially your line of “no one is taking anything else from me” statement. I often have said that when my trauma would bring struggle into my life. When it would affect my ability to run my business, or my relationships, or my mental health.
I would say, “F*ck that, this thing is not becoming another victim of my sexual assault.”
On we go! Sending you plenty of love vibes. Cheers!
