Survivors Support

I had the opportunity to attend @honeyorg survivors dinner where victims, survivors, and allies of sexual assault gathered and it was everything I didn’t even know I needed and more. Living as a victim of sexual and emotional abuse often times feels lonely, humiliating, vulnerable, unsafe, and terrifying. In a world where, more often than not, abusers and perpetrators are protected while victims are not believed, belittled, and attacked, it can be discouraging and anxiety-provoking daily. To be in such a safe and comfortable space where you know with a surety that you are fully supported, fully believed, and fully seen is the most sacred experience you could gift a person. I don’t think I’ve ever relaxed and breathed deeper than here surrounded by this support. Sharing my truth and hearing the truths of other survivors was healing and transformational. The energy and feeling that was captured in this evening was magic. I would highly suggest finding a support group like this whether it’s online or in person – it makes the burdens of recovering from trauma a pound lighter. If you’re a silenced survivor, I believe you. I care about you. I am a listening ear for you. I am a safe place for you. It’s not your fault and you shouldn’t have to carry this alone because you are not alone.

Some of my favorite sexual assault resources and groups include:
