You Are Not Your Trauma

Trigger warning: this piece discusses themes of trauma. 

Recently, I’ve been bombarded with traumatic memories I thought were left in the past.

My mind hasn’t given me a break, and I know I’m not alone in this.

The thing is, we are not what’s happened to us.

We are not dirty.

We are not broken.

We are not a lost cause.

We have experienced horrific things, but they do not define us.

We are bigger than the actions of others.

We can heal from the pain life brings.

We will feel safe again.

I will keep moving forward and I hope you do too.
