"What a gift that my fragile heart can still beat after all of the hurt. It is a dandelion in the middle of a field. A small speck of grace. It has made it through this storm and all other storms before. It carries on beating. Survivor. Survivor. Be gentle with you, always." — Alison Malee
#SAAM Sexual Assault Awareness Month Are you a victim or a survivor? As a society we also have to learn that our words act like swords and can cut deep to the core of a person. There are plenty of people who are in process of recovering from some of the most unimaginable violations and crimes.
Because no one really knows or understands what it's like to be me and keep living. When I break down I may seem weak to you, but I promise you this.... you wouldn't last a day in my life. You are not better because you are not sick... I refuse to be a victim! I AM a survivor!
