Thank you to our amazing online community for participating in our discussion yesterday about what not to say to someone who is disclosing. A very healing and powerful conversation. Tomorrow in Toronto we are having our first event of the year! Hope you can make it! Link in bio. #reclaimyourvoice 💗
April is Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Month
When someone you care about tells you they’ve been sexually assaulted or abused, it can be a lot to handle. A supportive reaction can make all the difference, but that doesn’t mean it comes easy.
Although we hope to never be confronted with this chances are you could. Be prepared. Check out the link in my bio .. "How to respond when someone I care about is impacted by sexual assault." @rainn01 #saapm#beanally
Time and a place and know when to use them, people can only relate to what they have experienced in life so just because you DONT have many personality DONT call someone fake because yesterday I had a hood moment, at a professional meeting but ended so classy you know things happen what kill me people in this world tries to play this perfect image, that's hell to me how do you even grow that is uncomfortable to play perfect when we all did some shit we not proud of, be true and real to self if those that truly love you will understand. #pointblankperiod#realshitturnsmeon#growth#loveself#like4like#repost#betruetowhoyouare#liveandlearn#godisgreat#tgif .
It's so hard to come to terms with the fact that my body is changing and I'm not going to always be the thinnest in the room anymore. I've tied my self worth directly to my weight for longer than I can remember. It's automatic for me to enter a room and scan to compare my body to everyone else's. But, does it even really matter? Maybe I won't be the skinny one every time but I can be the one who is kind, compassionate, friendly, loving, and that is what matters most. At the end of the day I'd rather be remembered for those things vs. the size of my body.
Great mantra for everyone to have to let go of the mistakes made this week and enter the weekend with a fresh mindset of growth and resilience 💖✨ All of us are flawed because all of us are humans. Brush off the so called "failures" and turn them into lessons. You owe it to yourself to be your own cheerleader.
The bigger and stronger you get, the bigger a target you become....However, you Tolerate, you fight on, you shed more....strength is in the growth. @ogaobinna
