Someone sold you a lemon.They told you that you were weak. They told you that you need to just get over it and move on. They told you that you grieved long enough. They told you all kinds of things to get you to stop suffering, or so they thought. What they managed to do was to get you to just stop talking.
What good did that do? What good does it do to constantly hear about someone taking their own life after surviving, and wonder why they did not talk to you? Wonder no more about that one. You just read the answer.
You did not choose that moment when trauma hit you.
You did not choose how it would take over everything.
So why are you making the choice to suffer as its victim instead of fighting to #TakeBackYourLife as what you are?
You survived it! It did not beat you that time and does not have to win this time.
