#TW Over the last year since I began my training in domestic violence/sexual assault crisis counseling, I have listened to horrifying stories of abuse from people of all ages and from all walks of life. I have tried my hardest to plant seeds of hope for survivors who have seen no sign of kindness or support during their unrelenting struggles. The healers are so important and can be so helpful in times of need, but the real heroes are the survivors. The people who have the courage to face each day, despite the unimaginable horrors they have experienced. THAT is inspiring. To have been abducted, tortured, assaulted, and abused in one way or another is bad enough. But to live in a world that blames you for the crimes commited against you, shames you, and scrutinizes you, is a whole other level of evil. As a crisis counselor, and a person who cares about the well-being of the people around me, it is extremely frustrating and heartbreaking to witness the same  scenarios playing out over and over again. ALL survivors deserve justice and peace to heal. All I ask is for you to educate yourselves, to be supportive, to listen without judgement, and to always be kind.  You never know what demons a person is wrestling with behind closed doors. Keep fighting the good fight peopleđź’Ş #NoMoreViolence #NoMoreExcuses

Anyone can be an asshole, set yourself apart by being kind.
