As I am holding space for survivors today in the conversation about #whyididntreport it is important to remind ourselves to honor our voices.
If you feel safe enough to share, do so.
If it is too triggering or unsafe, don't.
Just because there is a roar of voices doesn't mean you have to set yourself on fire in the process.
You owe yourself self-care and safety.
You owe NO ONE any pound of flesh, privacy, or peace.
You don't owe strangers anything.
I support your choice.
I honor your voice, raised publicly or held quietly.
I honor your right to heal and navigate these triggering conversations in the way that best serves your soul.
I have chosen to navigate this space in a way that honors my voice and choice... it doesn't make it better or worse than your choices.
You know the weight of your trauma. Only YOU can decide if speaking up is healing or destructive for your SELF.
You are not alone.
I believe you.
I believe your story.
I believe your silence.
I believe your volume.
I trust you to choose well.
