Leaving the business

This section is devoted to service providers who are already involved in the business.


The Fear

Many women in this profession began when they were young and remained in it for a while. Soon, it becomes all that you know. You become good at it; which makes you feel secure there now. You have now become comfortable. You have entered a difficult stage. A good friend once said to me, 'the only reason that you don't think that the job harms you emotionally/mentally anymore is because you have grown used to it. You don't feel the damage anymore because you are numb to it.' This is true of many women.

Remember the fear that you had when you first began working? You conquered it. You got to look at yourself in the mirror and honestly say, 'I've come a long way baby!' If you could bring yourself to have the strength to prostitute, you can do anything. It all comes down to how much you want it. Don't be ashamed of what you've done; don't beat youself up over it. You made a decission, you did it then and you are making another decission now. To begin a new life.

Once you walk away, do it forever. Don't use prostitution as a fall back. Take the logic, street smarts and survival skills you've learnt and move on to something better and more self fulfilling. If things don't go exactly as planned, don't give up. But if you do fall back into the business, don't do it because it was the easier way out. The convinient solutions are not always the best ones. Think of the things to gain. Use the scales again. Then once you have walked away, you can finally find forgiveness for yourself and hold your head high knowing that you've made it. Not many can say that!
