Independent and Fearless

“Be that strong girl that everyone knew would make it through the worst, be that fearless girl, the one who would dare to do anything, be that independent girl who didn’t need a man; be that girl who never backed down.” – Taylor Swift *Content warning: the following post talks about rape, abuse, and murder.
