They say a picture is worth a thousand words, right? What happens when all of those words are a lie? This picture was taken years ago while I was in the middle of my abusive relationship. Every thing about this picture is “make believe”, starting and ending with that smile. I was battered mentally, emotionally, verbally and at times, physically. I was depressed, broken and a shell of myself. Today, I look at this picture through the eyes of a woman who loves herself so much that she’ll never question her worth again. Who needs a thousand words when one will suffice? SURVIVOR.
