I am a survivor!

Am I living, or just have a life?    

What is life?

What is survival?

What is love?

As survivors, many of us are experiencing things we should have learned as children for the first time.  

Some say that we remind them of young children with all the questions and thoughts that we constantly ponder.  Personally, I am a survivor of a lifetime of dissociation as a result of severe emotional, physical, and sexual abuse.  So, maybe I do remind you of a young child exploring the world for the first time. Because, as a survivor, I am finally learning what it means to be alive.  As a child, I had no one to help me positively explore the world, I was forced to learn protection measures to survive.

No matter when your life starts, remember how far you have come each time you wonder why you are struggling to stay alive.  One day during your recovery, you are going to see the light.  And, others will see it, too.  When you’re free, your life blossoms and your smile shows it.
