You weren't, they weren't, we weren't hurt because of our skirt, the alley, our body language, alcohol, smiling, dancing, singing, or because we were weak and say that last part twice because it needs saying, we were not weak; it was because someone hurt us.

From "so this word "weakness", it's not working for me"

You can know all the things you are supposed to do. You can know, and you can pretend that the knowing should have mattered, and you can spend years living with yourself before you realize that it really wasn't your fault that someone hurt you. That realization was one of the most profound moments of my adult life. I stopped letting myself believe that I should have known better, and I started to understand: No. HE should have known better.

You should read her post. She is one smart cookie.

How To Apologize, by [livejournal.com profile] makesmewannadie

This is a fabulous, thought-provoking post about the way to apologize and actually MEAN it. I can see some of my own behaviours in there. I'm sure we all can.

Own your shit. I know it's something everyone struggles with, but things like this are a good way to remind yourself.
