Notes to self:To my younger self:Run away. Do it fast. Look up emotional rape. Get help with emancipation. It's hard, I know, but I'm stuck now where I know you didn't want to be. Trust yourself, most of all. I can't emphasize this enough. I know you were taught not to, but please believe in me, in us. Avoid that first fall, because even now, I don't know if I'm standing or crawling. I don't know if I ever cared to get back up.Where I am now, I have no regrets. But you shouldn't have to accept the things that I've finally come to terms with. You deserve more than I ever gave myself credit for. Take what you need and run. Just run. You're a smart girl. You can handle more than you think. The world is yours for the taking.But don't forget to have fun. I can't emphasize this enough either. Remember to continue exercising even after you're done with gym classes. Rock-climbing is fun.
