By Ottawa freelance artist, Lucky Little Queer
When I was in Catholic school, a teacher of mine told me that if I chose not to forgive my rapist for what he did to me, I was selfish. This piece is my act of reclaiming this selfishness by choosing to forgive myself and not my abuser. I am still a good person if I choose not to forgive people who have hurt me - what makes me good is the strength and kindness I try to show to myself and others.
