whose speaking out?

When i first started my blog i did it to help support sexual assault awareness month. But i continued it to continue sharing my story and encouraging others to do the same. By speaking out against sexual assault you can save lives. Even if its one life its an amazing thing. It may be hard well it is hard at first to share your story with someone. Before you do make sure you can trust that person. And if they are or have experienced the same as you then it may be easier to share with that person. Also find support groups that are also survivors. Its so much better when you use your voice and share what you been through. Like i said many times by speaking out you are taking a stand against the assault. No more victims. We're survivors. So i ask whose speaking out? Are you? Will you use your voice to help fight against the abuse?

  1. and, even when you aren't ready to share your story, there are still lots of things you can do from where you are... send letters to our representatives, start a blog, tweet.... find what you can do and do the best you can with what you have where you are... you can even show up to support other without disclosing your story if you aren't ready. that's the beauty of the survivors' community. we accept one another unconditionally, support each other from the start and love each other through the most difficult times. xo
