How's your day/evening going? Here, it's snowstorms, budget cuts and who knows what else in the next 24 hours.
As for us, it's cover more job leads and protection comes first. It feels like at times there's a little more stability (thanks to the holistic diet, meditation and more). However, symptoms are still there as well. We also try to keep in mind we have no control over others. On the other hand, we will politely and firmly stand up for ourselves.
Maybe that's one of the hardest parts of dealing with the full reality of being raped: horrible abuse as well. It feels like (in person), 99% of the world couldn't care less. Despite that, you can't just sit back and do nothing. You have to fight to keep your balance.
Now, it's matter of protection. Not being bullied. Always have as many options as possible. As for the abuse, those that did it will never change. Nobody made them do this. They chose to. Therefore, they have to live with that, not us.
You have to protect yourself.
