Wow! I completely forgot that today was Father’s Day. Some people would gasp at that statement, because to them, it would mean that either I was a terrible daughter, or that they should feel sorry that I missed out on what they had.
Yet for me, this day is simply a day. There is no sadness in not celebrating – there is freedom. It reminds me that I have freed myself from the shackles that held me for so long. Not only that, but that I have the right and the ability to choose to end abusive relationships.
So, don’t feel sorry for me, or think that I am bad on this day. Just remember that, by freeing myself, I have been given a voice in this world – and now I can make a difference in the lives of others.
