Saychelle- we are not damaged goods. We are survivors. Don't let anyone tell you differently.
We may have been hurt, abused, raped and at one point broken, but we are not damaged. We are individual unique artworks. So what if we are a little rough around the edges, or react to things differently. So what if we seem to other slightly off kilter. We have been through the kiln and we have not been destroyed.
I know what you mean though. I hate being referred to as damaged goods as well.
I only just saw this. Thank you. I'm too dissociated to write anything sensible in response.
