I’m Not Sorry

When I talk about the past – what I experienced, how I felt, how I feel now, how it’s impacted my life – I can’t help but say things that will be hurtful to somebody. I don’t write to bring pain to others or to make people angry. I write because it’s therapeutic to my soul. I write to shed light on what has hurt others and will continue hurting others if it’s not changed. I write because to remain silent is to die. 
I’m not bitter. Sometimes I’m angry, sonetimes melancholic, sometimes sad; expressing my feelings doesn’t mean I’m bitter, though. I have a voice and I’ve learned the power of using it. I squelched my feelings for far too long in an attempt to prevent the pain that speaking honestly would bring. I’m done with that.
