I am STILL working on my self esteem & confidence after that..they literally destroyed me from the inside out. The most hurtful part of all of it was to have girls that were my friends believe that I had betrayed them or to hurt a league I had put 2 years of my life into…all based on another girls LIES. It’s terrible, but girls are the worst when it comes to backstabbing….so now I am friendless because after 5 years I still can’t trust people.
I am hoping to observe a practice of the new league soon…as long as I can get my nerve up. My skates still fit and are calling to me……..
Reading this article made me feel better about myself because I know I’m not the only one who has gone though it. I had some truly horrible experiences because of roller derby, and when I looked for support I found endless bullshit about how empowering it is. This is a space for other people to know they are not alone.
