this week one of the writing prompts on mamas losin it is as follows
Take a line from a song you love and turn it into the title of your next blog post. Let the content follow.
The song I am choosing is Carrie Underwoods lessons learned.
I have learned many lessons from my abusers. Lessons I should have never had to learn.
I should have been allowed to be a child. Instead my childhood was ruined, tainted, taken.
Lessons I have learned from my abusers:
fear everyone and everything
never trust a man
hide, always hide
never speak your truth
never let your voice be heard
I am vile
My body is just a play thing
I am an object
I don’t matter
I have no value
I am weak
I am powerless and helpless
It is ok for people to do what they want to me
So as you can see, I learned so many awful things from those who abused me. It has taken years but I am slowly relearning them.
