i really believe we are not alone
we don't need to walk alone

but we have to face our courage
and sometimes people's indifference and ignorance

i told everyone at my job that i am an incest survivor
in a big email
i was so scared

but i received wonderful support. the president emailed me and said 'you have our full support. just tell us what you need.'

it does not need to be this way.
i understand how risky it is.
lets go.

Hello Ste,

The way you arrange your words resonates within me. There are times when I feel like I walk alone in this. I am a rational person, but even the best sounding logic cannot assuage this feeling on some days.

Then there is MS. I cannot quite explain the feeling of being understood. That is the moment I realize I am not alone. I do see beauty in this world amidst all of the chaos. I have to believe it does get better, and sometimes time does make things a little easier. I do think the way we spend that time carries more weight than time by itself.

Speaking about the ab*se can be difficult to do. It's not like you can just bring it up in a casual conversation. I have wanted to talk about it many a times with friends, but couldn't bring myself to do it. That all changed today. I am a blogger and I openly aired my past with the web community. I won't let fear hold me back anymore. I feel good about my decision.

I must say, I really appreciate your words of wisdom. Thank you for your post.



I am the warrior.
