Love, connection, support, trust, happiness, peace. It is what we need now more than ever. Community, and space to evolve without judgement or hate. Love for each other's gifts and compassion for each other's pain. Knowing you're not alone. Trusting that acceptance and freedom are nouns that still exist, even when the world shows you otherwise. We're in this together. 💗💗💗 #happymonday

"Today, as with everyday, is a new day.
Be sure to remind yourself that it is okay to be different from yesterday or not quite ready for tomorrow.
Sometimes we take a step back, regress, and other times we grow more in one day than we have in an entire year.
And that is exactly what life is about-
BALANCE and CHANGE.
For even the moon has its phases,
so why cannot we?"
For my 4-year old self that believed love was supposed to be painful and silencing.
For my 6-year old self the first time I heard the word rape and realized something wasn't right.
For my 8-year old self that simultaneously loved him and feared him. That needed him. That missed him. That needed her grandma. That needed her brothers. That needed her mom. That needed protection.
For my 9-year old self that felt unwanted and unneeded when we moved out. Who thought she was defined by sex and being needed.
For my 12-year old self that would secretly watch Lifetime movies about abuse because it reminded me of home.
For my 14-year old self when I realized I never had a virginity to give.
For my 16-year old self that thought the only way to end the pain was to end my life.
For my 18-year old self who was called "used" when asked why my homecoming date didn't want to date me.
For my 20-year old self that needed to figure out how to live a life without him.
For me. And my strength. And my constant battle to rise above the scars he left on my body.
And for you
For the girls who have still not said the words out loud.
For those who choose to stay silent.
For those who have not told friends or family or lovers.
For the girls who are embarrassed.
I believe you.
There is a lightness
And a strength
I have two hands,
If you need someone to help you up.
