Four years on from the mission that changed my life. I feel that I’m not the same person. I believe, I’m stronger for my experiences. I’m more in tune with my soul.
Even though the last few years have been painful I realise that I’ve needed to face these emotions. The memories of this mission will stay with me as a reminder that I needed to deal with the abuse and that I was ready to start the journey.
So, what does the future hold. I hope one day to be free of the memories. Maybe, I’ll be able to help other survivors in a practical way. By being able to stand up for the rights of survivors. To be able to share my story with people who now don’t understand the effects of abuse or be able to advise organisations that struggle with dealing with abuse.
