Survivor Lives Matter!

When I think about all of the "Lives Matter" movements, I think about how survivors of sexual abuse and sexual trauma should also be in the number. So, I raise my voice during the month of April to celebrate all survivors during Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Survivor Lives Matter!



You Matter

As a survivor of child sexual abuse, I have resiliently persevered through molestation and incest. It wasn't until I became an adult and well into my 30's that I realized how much I matter. Like many survivors, I had my fair share of ucovering those things that tried to prevent me from unveiling who I am and how much I matter. Just like a careful driver that somehow got stuck in the mud and need someone to pull them out, is the same way that I felt with embarrasment, low self-esteem,and shattered self-confidence. I needed someone to come along and pull be out of this mud. These negative attributes were my mud. At one point in my life I felt as though I was stuck not knowing the true meaning of my existence, and what I was worth. After much spiritual work, many mistakes, and therapy, I realized that I did matter.

Like many survivors, I had my fair share of ucovering those things that tried to prevent me from unvieling who I really am and how much I matter.

These negative attributes were my mud, and I was hoping that someone would come along and rescue me. After much spiritual work, many mistakes, and therapy, I realized that I did matter. Remember that Survivor Lives Matter!
