The only guilt I felt was about not feeling guilty that I had done it. That soon passed when I realized that it didn’t matter what anyone else thought.

It was two days before Christmas and my seasonal job fired me for not being available during the Christmas rush. I was 8 months into my first relationship since I had escaped with my son from an abusive relationship. My then partner and I both lived with our respective parents and were working and studying. I have never, not once, regretted my decision. The only guilt I felt was about not feeling guilty that I had done it. That soon passed when I realized that it didn’t matter what anyone else thought. ‪#‎ShoutYourAbortion‬
