I was chosen by my perpetrator.
Those two sentences were so freeing to me. During the early days of my healing, I regularly repeated them.
I could now add:
- They were bigger and more powerful.
- They didn’t have the right to hurt me or take advantage of me.
- They were hypocrites. They tried to manipulate me into believing the lie that they did this out of love for me. Instead, they were doing it to meet their own addictive craving.
