For years, that question has dogged me. As you can see, I’m not a great beauty.
Why did the stalkers choose me? What did you do? What did you do to them that has made them hate you so much?
Well, up until a few months ago, I, myself, did not know the answer to those questions. Oh, I read lots of on-line texts trying to figure that out. Some of it made sense, in the natural. And some of it was idiocy.
And I have heard every reason, given by the stalkers, and I can say that those reasons are excuses. Nothing more.
1. I She had an abortion. To know that, they would have had to have been following me before that happened.
2. My father jilted their mother (grandmother).
3. My mother bad-mouthed them or was jealous
4. I was a slut
5. I smelled bad
6. I didn’t know how to treat people
7. I was hearing voices other than theirs
Like I said, I’ve heard them all.
But, honestly, I don’t think the stalkers chose me so much as I was thrust upon them, by birth. No, I think God tricked them into choosing me, the writer, not the person.
And the reason I say that is, if it hadn’t been for me, there would be no #MeToo Movement or # TimesUp.
And I’m not saying that to brag on myself. I’m saying that because if God hadn’t tricked them into stalking me, then I would not have written STALKED! By Voices and I never would have sat at my little corner desk in my little apartment with my finger hovering over the send button, asking myself should I do this. What will be the consequences? If I do this and I am imaging the voices, how do I play this off?
And then I heard, “Do You Trust Me?” And it wasn’t the stalkers.
So, after receiving numerous rejections of my book, STALKED! By Voices, I decided to share my book, free of charge, with anyone who dared to read it. That was on December 3, 2011, 2008.
Now what I didn’t see or even understand at the time, was that I was NOT ALONE. There were other women out there being abused, sexually and verbally harassed, and sexually intimidated and assaulted. Nor did I understand the secrecy and dirty politics that made it all possible. But God did.
I didn’t know about The Catholic Priests, Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinsten, and Dr. Larry Nassar. But God did.
All he needed was someone willing to testify and who could write a half way decent post that people would read.
That person was me and That’s why me.
