I commend Matt for sharing and being honest. It’s never easy to face yourself that way and admit you used someone, and took the easy way over the right (and difficult) way.

I’ve been that broken girl. I’ve been that girl who had misplaced hope, and let others use my body in the attempt of reconciliation. It was painful. It prolonged my healing. It was also the easy way out instead of the right way, as I didn’t want to face the truth.

I hope that there are people who read this article and take something from it with them. The easy way is just that, the easy way. It has the potential to hurt others and leave lasting scars on others.
