I should really be asleep right now but having lay in bed for the past two hours with no sign of dropping off, I have officially given up.
Something is on my mind……..
I had a response to the last “spiteful girls” blog, an unpleasant one. It was clearly someone who knows N and was not happy about my post. They mirrored N by telling me to assess myself and look at my “own faults”.
I have never said I’m faultless. Quite the opposite. I find fault in almost everything I do.
They also made the point that I needed “help”.
I needed help from N ten years ago. Writing is my help. It allows me to speak out and share my experiences. Experiences that are mine. Nobody can deny that. They happened to me. Anger won’t get you anywhere, I’ve learnt that. It isn’t about revenge. Silence is not the answer. How many more women have to keep their mouths shut to save the reputation of others? I can understand that other people may not and might never have seen N in the same light as me. It doesn’t mean what happened to me didn’t exist. She was and is a clever girl.
So right now, I am awake. With this now on my mind.
Conclusion of “spiteful girls” tomorrow.
Or should I say today?
