Five years ago.

I’ve realised over the last few weeks that I’ve struggled with some strong feelings. It’s five years since two conversations about abuse in the Catholic Church had triggered something in my head. Then the community I was a member of forced me into a situation where I could have come face to face with it. 

I had tried to get out of this mission. It was to a secondary school. Even though I did I felt more pressure and stress. Also being the only driver on the team didn’t help. Now I feel resentment at the way it was handled. 

For the first time in my life I feel, that I’m the only one who can change my destiny. I’m proud of the progress I’m making. Proud that I survived. And proud to say I’m almost a thriver. 

Five years of confusion 

Five years of pain

Five years asking why me

Five years of surviving

Five years of healing

Here’s to five years of thriving.
