You Can

Trigger warning: this piece discusses themes of trauma.

Recently, I have been watching a lot of ‘Law and Order: SVU.’ There was an episode where my all-time favourite Olivia Benson said something to a victim that I thought could be adapted to suit many circumstances. She said, “You survived the attack, which means you can survive the recovery.” 

So, let’s change it up a bit to fit into recovering from a mental crisis. 

You can survive the recovery because you survived the trauma! 

There are many adaptations that can be made to this to fit whatever you may be going through. But just know that you can!
