This is another inspired writing- again, where I sit down and it comes flowing out, unfiltered, without necessarily being grammatically correct or academically organized. I edit a bit for clarity, but otherwise try to leave the words and ideas intact.
A Letter To Those Who Were Abused As Children:
You are not soiled.
Lift yourself up and own your brilliance and sparkle.
Cast off any feelings of shame, soiledness, or unworthiness.
You were abused.
That does not define your worth . It does not make you “less-than.”
Because someone appeared to have power over you does not take away your brilliance- it does not diminish you.
They were in fear.
You are not.
You are not damaged or broken because of it.
Someone wrongly abused their power with you when you were a vulnerable child.
That has no bearing on you and your self-worth and self-confidence.
You do not have to live a life of lack of physical pleasure because of it.
Own your power and you can have everything you deserve.
You are eternal.
No mortal human has any authority over you.
You are connected to the divine and will always be worthy.
Any human who tries to take away another’s power is acting from fear, anger, and hurt themselves.
They will not gain power that way.
You know that.
So lift your head high.
Own your personal power.
And let no mortal acting from fear take away what is always yours to claim.
