Wondering what I did? Well, I wrote an article about my rape. Well, not really. I wrote an article about a piece of legislation and spoke about my rape relative to it. 2 small paragraphs among almost 1,500 words. Today, I finished it and sent it to my editor for review.
I was freaking out a little but reminded myself that it’s not about me, it’s about all the women who need the law changed so they can start to heal. The way I’ve been given the gift of healing. I have amazing people around me, supporting, listening, validating, helping me let go of it as an ‘everyday’ thing.
Today, I was brave and sent the article to my editor. And the world didn’t stop! I’m really proud of myself. Seeing it in print might be a completely separate conversation.
But for today, I did it and I’m proud of myself!
