Dedication: For all women who are forced to be in the shadow and suffering for others fault
Hey. Meet me, Angel Maria. I’m a teenager from back in school looking for a simple, peaceful life. My early years were marked by terror and horrific experiences. My cousins started molesting me when I was three years old, and it went on for ten years. When I was ten years old, I recognized it wasn’t just a game, even if I had previously thought it was some sort of game. When I began to refuse their requests to sleep with them, they began to blackmail me. I began to isolate myself from my friends and family because I was so terrified. Despite being aware of it, my brother remained silent. I later became thirteen and stood up to them; at that moment, I didn’t give a damn what people thought of me. And afterwards, I stood so firm that they were afraid to reveal what they had done. I used to believe that I was weak, but overcoming my fear and standing up to injustice let me realize that I’m stronger than I realized. I eventually learned to love who I am as an independent woman. I’m pleased with myself, too. I’m asking all women to put aside their concerns about society and take up the fight for their rights. Since it’s all they know how to do, don’t worry about what other people think. And never believe you’re in fault.
