There are a lot of people in my life that have helped me become the person I am today. Mainly my parents and my siblings. This video is a tribute to some of the people who have helped make me me, and I appreciate them with my entire being. They have been my supporters, and have helped me get through a lot of the hard times, and some of the worst times when all I wanted to do was give up.
When it comes to getting through things, I rely deeply on the people around me to help me get through it,because when I was younger, I used to not want to feel like a burden on anyone, and so would try to deal with it on my own. It that process, I lost the love of my life, a best friend, (which was not really my fault as she went a little "nuts" in the literal sense) and a good realationship with my father. Which I've just recently, within the last year, got back, although not nearly the same as before, but still, it's back to me not feeling like a disappointment anymore. He may not show it, but I know he's proud of the person I have become.
I recently put together a Child Abuse Awareness Event, in respect to Child Abuse Awareness Month, which was April, and most of my support group came out to support me and the cause, and I love them all the more, those that showed up. During that event, my abuser walked by, not even noticing us, as his abused. My siblings were very young, I was 11 when we got out. And now I am 22. So it is understandable that he wouldn't recognize the children he forever destroyed. But even with that, we were able to help a few people, and in turn, my "people" helped me get a little bit better through the few days I was hurt by the people who didn't show, and the fact that my abuser made an appearance, while I was singing about how he turned my life to crap, and turned me into an empty, hollow, shell of a girl once upon a time.
So this video is a tribute to those who have helped me out a long the way... and I love them very much for it. I dont think they realize just how much they mean to me.
