I have decided to temporarily take off the “My truth” post from the blog post.
I had written the post as a reminder to myself. Because there were people out there, who had heard one side of the story and were judging me, and demeaning me because of that.
I wanted my side to be out there, as well. If for nothing else, then for my satisfaction. I waited for five days, to get the courage to talk about it. And I will need a lot more time to even think about being myself again.
I was alone and helpless. And more so, when supposed ‘friends’ were calling me at 12.30 at night to say that they did not believe I had it in me to do anything. But I don’t feel that anymore. I feel that I did something. I am not a victim. I do not want to be one.But I’m at least the girl who did not stay quiet.
I did not expect the overwhelming sympathy and support that I got here, and I am at a loss for words to even begin to thank all of you.
The only reason the post is not up here currently, is that though I have the courage to talk about it, there are people in my life (parents, siblings, relatives) who will not be okay with facing the consequences. And I would not want them to either.
Even though there will be consequences, and I will live with them, I am glad I spoke up. And I am glad that there are people who will raise their voice against violence, no matter who suffers from it.
I cannot say this enough- Thank you.
