I'm not sure where to begin, and maybe most of it doesn't need to be said.
Three days ago, I noticed colors again. Bright and vivid. When did the sky get so blue? I swear it was never that blue except for a day in Arizona ten years ago. The grass too? I pass those fields several times a week.
My world was working on a dimmer switch and someone cranked it up to full capacity...
I woke up this morning with my spine curving more properly than it has in the last three years.
What's tomorrow going to look like?
So the question that you're all asking is, "What changed?"
Remember the Ex? Yep, gone. It took far more drastic steps than I would have ever thought necessary but I am free of him. Three weeks ago, I started taking the steps to break free of the chains he placed around me. And in the end, I won.
No one knew the extent of what that man did to me and what he put me through. In many ways, no one ever will. But I survived. I dislike the term "victim." No, I'm a survivor.
As for the present? I can live. For the first time, I can live freely.
The only chains I will ever wear again are the ones for fun and pleasure. :)
