Speaking Out Anyway
Before I opened up about the abuse, I had taken into account that there might be consequences. I was terrified of what my abuser would do if he ever found out I’d talked. Maybe some people would get mad at me, call me a liar, a drama queen; maybe some would stop talking to me. But I decided to speak out anyway, and I do not regret it.
I know I’m telling the truth. I have no proof and no witnesses. Some people believe me: there’s nothing I can do to convince those who choose not to, or those who for their own comfort simply decide to turn a blind eye.
But I’m not gonna stop speaking out. And if there are people who decide to shun me for it, so be it.
