Take it in….breathe deep, and realize, it gets better from here!
You survived!! What should have taken you out, didn’t! Many women did not make it. Some are still in it, yet…..you made it. Was it easy? No. However, that never stopped you- you made it!
I keep saying “you made it” for a reason. The reason is so you won’t forget, that through it all – you survived. Whatever was sent to break you, couldn’t do it. Yes, some things may have cracked your masterpiece, but you’re still beautifully standing.
Of course you may think/say to yourself, “I’m still in it. I haven’t seen the light of day yet! I’m about to loose my mind! I don’t know how much more I can take!” Look at that picture above. The person who took the picture wasn’t sitting on a porch, enjoying a glass of lemonade. Nor was he or she, fully submerged in the waters. I’m willing to believe that the person was just above the waters, just enough to capture that picture of the sun setting. The person caught a moment, which many wish to capture. There’s beauty in the setting of the sun. While some may see it as the ending of great day, some may see it as the beginning of something great.
Going back to the person who captured the picture, who’s to say that their circumstances where of comfort, while taking the picture? It is very well possible that the waters were frigid. It’s possible that they have been wearied all day, from trying to catch that picture – which would satisfy the artist within them. The negative scenarios are endless. Nevertheless, none of what could have went wrong, is captured in this picture. Now back to you….
You may still be in that situation. Everything around you may be giving you hints of defeat. But the fact that you’re reading this, is a sign that things can get better. Nothing lasts forever. Nothing!!! So with that being said… It is my prayer that from this day forward, you will be able to catch little glimpse of light. Catch the glimpse and hold onto them. Hold on and know, that it’s going to get better for you. You may have been physically abused, emotionally damaged, sexually and/or verbally assaulted, etc. But you’re here! You’re still breathing, and that’s something to celebrate. You’re going to make it. You’re going to come out! You may be SCARRED – but those SCARS are turning into your BEAUTY MARKS.
