Today an actor said that abuse survivors must have done something wrong in another life. This is an insult to all survivors. With the Savile business still lurking in the press.
It’s so wrong that when I pick up a paper or switch the news on its another triggering report. Why can’t we see more positive coverage.
Coverage about charities that help survivors piece our lives back together, after having our childhood robbed by evil people.
As survivors we must use our voices to challenge the perception of survivors. We need to rise up and fight the negative press reports. To challenge those who don’t believe and to show compassion and love to all survivors.
In my opinion survivors are the strongest people alive. Most of us living normal lives with the long term effects of abuse.
We endure so much but give so much more in love and compassion.
This is dedicated to every survivor even those who have not started on this journey yet.
