Live, learn and don’t look back

You will never see all the awesome things ahead of you if you keep looking at the bad things behind you.

Sometimes you just have to turn around, give a little smile, throw the match, burn that bridge, and move on.

You are not the worst person on earth; you aren’t the one with the darkest pasts.

Some people have been through the worst things and they didn’t give up on themselves. They conquered; they learned how to move on and never look back.

Who can believe I could ever survive the trauma of rape, worst still it was done by someone I thought I could trust.

He was my best friend and confidant. Some people thought we were siblings, some thought we were couples.

Well, he made it clear to me I wasn’t his spec, as I had muscles all over my body, that doesn’t change that I’m beautiful though.

I was happy, I had a male best friend, who was like a brother I never had. Well, it was the trauma I lived with for years.

I forgave him after my parents made sure he was sent to juvenile prison. I never had a god sleep for yours, the memories keep taunting me, and I felt so dirty and vulnerable.

I hated men and never let anyone come close to me. The nightmares never stopped, I felt like I was losing my mind; I knew I needed a therapist. She told me I was the cause of my problems; she told me I refused to move on from my past and look at the brighter side of life.

I heeded her advice and decided to make the best out of life. I let go of my past and never looked back, you can do the same.
