I've been a long-time reader of your blog, How a Girl Figures. I'm a big fan and I've always looked up to you! I have a sort of uncomfortable question (feel free to ignore). I remember a blogpost you wrote long ago about family abuse that was happening in your life. I wanted to know why you decided to delete it? I ask is because I was going through my own abuse at the time and it was your post that gave me the courage to speak up and get help. I felt you were so brave to be so publicly honest.
To be 100% it’s because when I wrote it, I was angry, I was hurt and I just needed a place to be open. But afterwards the constant questions about my situation were a bit difficult to handle.
I’ve been really lucky in that my family has been able to renew itself and become whole again. With a mixture of therapy, medication and lots and lots of conversations, we all were able to get our feelings out in the open and do our best to repair the family that we had.
I still hope to be publicly honest about things in my life, but I realized the hate and the anger I had posted about, the horrible things in my life were slowly becoming a past I didn’t want to cling to.
I’d rather focus on the happiness in my life, like my friends, my family, my job, my boyfriend, everything in my life that makes me happy. I’d rather express more to the world through my love of figures and anime than bring up a past that needs to stay where it is, in the past.
